    I worked at Young Learners and Southwest Schools full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Staff and teachers were awesome! Lots of support and help.
    Kids are pretty good overall - not really any bad kids.

    Cons

    Extremely negative administration. If they like you, you're gold. If not .... move on.
    Library is critically under stocked.
    Playground is minimal - no place to really run for the kids.
    Art and music are almost non-existent.
    Administration has power issues.

    Advice to Management

    Structure is one thing but having all the doors open and expecting children in grades 5 and lower to be silent in the hall is unreasonable. There are real personnel issues with administration, too.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Young Learners and Southwest Schools (Houston, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Application had been on file for over a year but a specific opening in my area came up mid-year.
    Called school to contact principal.
    Met with principal and assistant principal the week before Christmas - pretty hectic.
    Got a tour of the school with the principal - seemed like I had the job already as she was pointing out policies and procedures.
