    I have been working at Adams 12 Five Star Schools full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative, innovative, and creative. Kids are put first at Westgate and teachers are treated like professionals and their expertise is valued and sought after by administration. Social-emotional learning is center to student learning and is taught directly 30 minutes a day. It's a wonderful place to learn and grow for adults and students!

    Cons

    Some of the parents tend to be helicopter parents.

    Teacher Interview

    Interview

    Teachers who have been displaced (low enrollment in their school, etc) within the system are supposed to be first on the list to be hired in another school but still have to be interviewed. Interview with principal and other chosen teachers. It is possible it can be fair, but more likely the principal controls the entire process and does what he/she wants (or more likely what the upper administration is directing them to do. It is a very political, upper administration driven environment now).
