    Special educator for 31 years

    Special Ed Teacher (Former Employee)
    Lawrence, MA

    ProsDeveloping relationships that help at risk students succeed. Professional interactions with other teachers, an support staff, to insure a student is able to develop strengths to overcome their disability

    ConsAdministrators use to support staff. There is no support for development of behavior management strategies. The principal, during my last year, violated IEP's by merging 2 resource rooms with the reasoning that" Lawrence was out of compliance so what difference does it make". The receiver knew about the violation and it continued

    Advice to Senior ManagementTest scores and being concerned with how things "Look", cannot be the only priority

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
