    I worked at Fulton County Schools full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Had a position teaching K-2 special education as a resource teacher and I was able to receive resources that I needed to be successful. Paid during the summer months.

    Cons

    Took a half-year contract at an elem. school in a low income area. The students were great, but the principal and assistant principal at the time were a petty, vindictive, liars, who gave campus educators "good teacher evaluations" when they thought they were going to stay, but would bad mouth good teachers by giving career ruining bad verbal references when they tried to leave their school to go to a new one. Advice--BEWARE!! If a teacher or teachers left in the middle of the year, or after one year--this isn't a good sign, no matter how they try to "spin" the reasoning. Also, It can be very political where certain sorority/fraternities/employee's controlled politics. Parental involvement is low in the lower income areas i.e. 90/90 schools where 90% of the students receive free or reduced lunches. Principal's words are taken as "gospel" by main office, giving bad administrators the opportunity to ruin and demoralize teachers simply for speaking up/having a different opinion/not kissing up to their cronies/wanting to leave or transfer.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your educators! Give teachers the opportunity to defend themselves and their careers and hold administrators accountable. If they are giving bad evaluations/references just to keep good teachers down/at their schools--discipline them not the teachers! Go to the Special Ed/Psych center, and change management b/c it's looooooong over due. Pay teachers more and update the evaluation system.
