I worked at Shelby County School District full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

A lot of support for teachers to abide by the Core Standards of teaching as required by the State of Tennessee. Online training to improve teacher effectiveness is available and extensive. The administration wants their teachers and students to succeed.

Cons

It is very hard for new teachers to catch on to the rigor of what it takes to be a good teacher. For some teachers it may not be the right job for them.

Advice to Management

Some of the 'tougher' schools may need a second teacher or assistant in the classroom for the first 3 to 6 months to help maintain organization and classroom management. Thank you.

    I have been working at Shelby County School District full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Shelby county schools was a well functioning educational system which placed student needs above all else and I was proud to be a part of it.

    Cons

    It no longer exists since the merger of the two local school systems.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your teachers because it is becoming quite apparent that some of you have forgotten what its like to be in the classroom and what is realistic. This is as much to the state as it is to the school board
