    Pros

    Working for the department of education is a rewarding job. With my position, I have the opportunity to teach teachers and students the new technologies that are forever changing and advancing.

    Cons

    One con would be the lack of funds available. As mentioned above, technologies are forever changing and advancing. Because of this funds can become an issue if wanting to stay up with current technology.

    Advice to Management

    The only type of advice I can think of would be to provide amble training time when purchasing new software.

    Pros

    Great school calendar that is balanced throughout the year that includes summer break, fall break, Thanksgiving break, Christmas break, Winter break and spring break

    Cons

    There are little to no opportunities for advancement. School leadership seems to change every two to years with little consistency. High turnover in some schools.

    Advice to Management

    When new leadership takes place there always seems to be several changes as everyone seems to make an effort to place their stamp of identity on something. Things that have worked in the past were changed and in some instances the old way proved to be much better and was reverted back to.

    Teachers are a dispensible commodity.

    Pros

    Rockdale is comparable to other districts in the Atlanta area. Teacher salary, benefits, and work load is pretty much the same in Rockdale as in other counties. It is nice to work in a school district/school that consistantly makes AYP.

    Cons

    The opinions of students and their parents seem to dictate whether a teacher's contract is renewed. Teacher's are nonrenewed, leaving them unemployed because of the statements of a child. Teachers are also nonrenewed because of "budget cuts". I gues this is happening across Georgia.

    Advice to Management

    Good teachers are not a dispensible commodity and should be treated like the professionals that they are. High turnover rate for teachers and leadership is never good.
