No opinion of CEO

Pros

I love working here because I get valuable teaching experience while continuing to learn more about effective practices and interventions for struggling students.

Cons

Sometimes I am asked to complete the "unwanted" tasks of the teachers such as making copies and completing bulletin boards. Although a huge part of teaching, I would prefer to do this before or after the school day, and not during.

Advice to Management

I love how we are supported by the special ed. coordinator.

    Pros

    The best reason is paid vacation. No other job will give you as much paid time off and vacation time like jobs at a school.

    Cons

    There is really no growth in this industry or expanding your career. Some faculty members are beyond what you would call rude.

    Pros

    The district is small enough that there is room to experiment with new educational theories. It depends lot on the school but in my case the administration was very supportive of the teachers.

    Cons

    The current superintendent is not working well with unions and teachers and we are seeing the same tone is elsewhere blaming teachers for all problems and painting teachers as lazy and ineffective.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to include teachers in the important decisions. We are sick of learning of your decisions by reading the Boston Globe.
