    I worked at Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools full-time

    Pros

    CHCCS is a fine school district to work for, with a great reputation. They have a new system in place to reward teachers for working harder. I hope that it will be successful in the future - as I was leaving once it started getting off the ground.

    Cons

    One thing that confused me about working at CHCCS was the lack of teacher training resources. We certainly had in house trainings, but lacked any workshops geared toward special education or special education assistants.

    Pros

    My principal was wonderful. I had supportive parents and access to all of the classroom supplies I could possibly ask for.

    Cons

    Big achievement gap in the district. Some principals do not have the same wonderful reputation that mine had.

    I worked at Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools full-time

    Pros

    Lots of young and innovative teachers. Highest paying area in the state. Parents in general care about their children behavior and success

    Cons

    I believe that I am just dissatisfy with teaching as a whole. I find it very frustrating the lack of consistency with implementation of instruction and the amount of emphasis put on the actual layout required in lesson plans. I do not feel like it is a kid or teacher first set up

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent

    I worked at Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools full-time

    Pros

    Best academics in the state-parents are very involved for the most part, so many of the kids have a lot of support. Overall, the majority of teachers really care for the kids and want success for them.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a difference in how "underprivileged" kids are treated--they are given every opportunity to succeed which is great--but occasionally the kids 'get away with' not working as hard as a result. Wealthy and/or typically functioning kids are sometimes held to a higher standard academically.

    Pros

    Great school system with outstanding students.

    Cons

    Very hard to get a regular fulltime position; I'm working as a sub.

    Get some input from the subs; they would be more objective and less guarded.
