    Pros

    Family oriented; Great health insurance; Intrinsic value from the teaching profession; summers off.

    Cons

    While this isn't necessarily the fault of CMCSS... the expectation of the profession is that you will spend countless hours and finances outside of the school day contributing to your classroom - often to the detriment of yourself and your family.

    Advice to Management

    Work on morale as a whole for both teachers and students. Think outside the box on motivating students to make the right choice.

    I worked at CMCSS full-time

    Pros

    The faculty is amazing at the schools. I was free to make my own curriculum as a non-tested subject.

    Cons

    The district office was more concerned about their image in the news than supporting teachers. Very focused on testing.

    Pros

    The online system they have is very useful in helping you choose when and where you want to work, as well as taking off days ahead of time. The people at the main office are also very polite and helpful in answering questions; It's a pleasant experience to call into the main office to speak with someone. It was wonderful to be able to consistently come back to certain schools and establish some sort of rapport with classes and adjacent teachers.

    Cons

    A lot of the time, I did not feel valued as a substitute teacher because of the tone of emails and pre-recorded phone call messages. That being said, I understand that sometimes there is a huge demand for subs and they do this on a daily basis, so the situation can get stressful and repetitive. Also, the initial orientation and training also left me feeling like they were prepared for the worst from the subs, which sort of deflated a great deal of positive motivation. As someone with experience in teaching, I left the training feeling more discouraged to be substituting.

    Advice to Management

    Make an orientation that is more hands-on and interactive for prospective substitute teachers. Reading off of PowerPoint slides and watching videos for a few hours is just not effective. As an educational institution, I feel that you should be demonstrating how we should be subbing. Give inexperienced teachers ideas for classroom techniques and activities through delivery of your own content; lead by example.
