    I have been working at Berkeley County School District (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love my team members.

    Cons

    The paperwork, documentation and analysis of testing data, discipline issues and the need to justify my professionalism through needless classes and evaluations has worn me out.

    Advice to Management

    Choose ONE program. Stick with it for FIVE years. There is no way to calculate success if there is a new bandwagon to jump on every single year.

    I have been working at Berkeley County School District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are ok, staff at my school are cordial and helpful. Watching children learn and grow is a great joy!

    Cons

    Testing, testing, testing with no real time to cover material. Behavior issues are the school's problem and not the parent's.

    Advice to Management

    Discipline children who need it by inconveniencing parents until they must take notice. If using PBIS, consider that you're enabling a child for life!
