    Pros

    DC Prep is a mission-based organization with lots of fun, motivated young teachers. Every single colleague was really awesome both in and out of the classroom.

    Cons

    It was not possible to complete the total tasks expected. I was consistently overwhelmed and supervisors were unhelpful when I asked for support in prioritizing. I got a lot of feedback -- too much at times -- and it was sometimes contradictory and further overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more paraprofessionals to ease the load on teachers or decrease class size.

    I have been working at DC Prep full-time

    Pros

    A great school doing right by kids, with a really wonderful team of adults working toward the same students-first goals.

    Cons

    The extended school day means long hours, different positions can face different challenges and differing workloads
