Mission: Every student succeeds: Educating lifelong learners and inspiring civic responsibility.
I worked at Alexandria City Public Schools full-time (More than a year)
Small district so there are more frequent trainings and more personal attention.
Very competitive salary for Northern Virginia area.
Diverse workplace and incredibly diverse student population.
Funding for resources readily available.
Not the most qualified staff in the district offices compared to the bigger school systems, trainings were often dull.
Schools are fairly unequal in terms of wealth distribution.
Advice to Management
Perhaps sharing ideas and research for trainings with neighboring districts to grow the strongest teachers.
I applied online. I interviewed at Alexandria City Public Schools.
Met with the principal and she asked questions pertaining to my philosophy of teaching, management style, and quick scenarios. I was also to describe my ideal classroom. After the interview, the principal called me the same day and offered me the job. I was then contacted by Central Office with a formal offer.
