I worked at Mesa County Valley School District full-time (More than a year)

Pros

They are pretty much the only district for most of Mesa County, so they really don't have any competition.

Cons

Like many schools and districts, they have no idea what they are doing and are just throwing ideas at the wall, seeing if there are any immediate results and if they'll stick. They have teachers drop everything to try a new idea out and then never do any follow up.

Advice to Management

Make sure that it is actually the principal who is running the school and not the custodian like out at Loma Elementary.

    I have been working at Mesa County Valley School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoy helping kids learn to discover and use advanced skills in their search for a place in this changing world. It is incredibly fulfilling.

    Cons

    I simply cannot raise my three kids and my minimal bills on a teaching salary schedule that is basically a pyramid scheme for the teachers who had no other options over the years and somehow hung on to make over 50 grand.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a professional teacher a professional salary.

    I worked at Mesa County Valley School District full-time

    Pros

    Fellow teachers are generally great, helpful. Curriculum is well defined. Class size is reasonable (about 25 average). They try to limit the number of different preps, I taught only 4.5 classes (one remedial class was 30 minutes) per semester.

    Cons

    Fairly normal problems, but still annoying: you serve at the complete discretion of your principal for the first two years. Fellow teachers have no input, you have no input. Pay is low for the number of hours and effort you put in.
