    Pros

    I enjoyed working here, even though my time here was brief as a summer intern. They treated me with respect and allowed me to do my work independently. My supervisor did occasionally check in on me, but as a way to make sure I was doing okay.

    Cons

    The different departments did their own thing and kept to themselves.

    I also had no one to guide and teach me in my projects. Most of all I did was learned through experience and I performed most of my tasks using my own judgment and resources.

    A demanding district with a lot of opportunity for professional growth! Newton has access to current curriculum and resources with a wise leadership team.

    Cons

    There are a lot of concurrent initiatives, and it can be overwhelming to manage all of them.

    Good supervisors, good pay for the work being done and the field. Students are easy to work with for the most part.

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good Benefits, Summers Off.

    Cons

    Incompetent Boss who was on a power trip; she was in over her head and too dumb to know it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shave off about five levels of management; worry less about special ed regs and hire people who actually know what they are doing. Newton was worried about saving money and looking good. They did not care about the children in their care.
