    I have been working at Clay County School District

    Pros

    I'm sure that it all depends on which school you are working in with which principal. There were some good opportunities for professional development.

    Cons

    I worked in RideOut Elementary School as a brand new, straight out of college teacher. I was teaching a self-contained special education class, given no curriculum, not materials, no guidance. Assistant principal came in about a month into school and asked why I wasn't using a particular reading program and why hadn't I told her that I had not been trained in the program, because they would have sent me in August... (then end of September). They made it my fault that I wasn't using the curriculum that I was never provided. Throughout the year I was given good reviews, but was then told that I would not be offered a contract for the following school year. The principal told me this 15 minutes before the buses arrived on a Wednesday morning, which seemed inconsiderate to me and irresponsible as I was slightly shaken throughout the school day that I spent with students, and I hadn't planned on coming back the following year anyway!

    Advice to Management

    Support new teachers. In the interview the principal talked about balancing work and life in order to not burn out... I think if school leaders offered guidance and support to their teachers they would be less likely to burn out!
