Negative Outlook

I worked at San Mateo Union High School District full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Had lot of resources to utilize and department heads who we interested in my success, although not much time to help me.

Cons

3 classes of Integrated Sciences of mostly angry and misbehaving students who disrespected me because I was a substitute teacher and not a "real teacher" in their opinion. 80 Hr Work weeks regardless of pay. Even as a new teacher, no BTSA support as this was a substitute position and a regular, full-time position. Lied to about pay and position by Vice Principal and Biology Department Head. Appears to be typical M.O. in the education industry.

Advice to Management

I don't believe the Upper administration is interested in improving the way they do business.

    I have been working at San Mateo Union High School District full-time

    Pros

    Medium sized district receiving funds from bond measures. Pays well for the location lots of different job opportunities and pretty low turn-over.

    Cons

    As with all school districts, there are mostly women in the administrative and support functions; almost all men as you get higher up.
