Former Employee - High School Teacher in Madison, VA

Pros

Being a teacher meant an awful lot of independence from oversight which was nice. The benefits were very good, the salary was fairly good as well considering it was right out of college. The area was fairly cheap to live in. The superintendent was very hands on, and got to know all of the teachers, but this is a very small school district.

Cons

When the principal got involved things went downhill fast. In addition, like many (all?) teaching jobs, the students can be apathetic at best, destructive at worst. There were good students to balance it out, but this was a rural area. Many students were convinced that they were going to continue doing what "pappy" did, and farm or log trees (and I am not making a value judgment on the chosen vocation, simply describing a con to a teacher).

Advice to Management

The school board office management seems to be doing fine. They are involved in the schools on a daily basis and suitably hands on or off as needed. The line management in the schools needs to pay more attention to what their teachers are doing. There are teachers who are turning kids loose for all three lunchs, letting kids roam the halls, and not actually doing any teaching during class time and they are either unaware or ignoring it.
