Pros

There is a great deal of support as a corps member form other teachers, corps members, MTLD's, staff. I have always found the help I needed. I was also able to transform lives of students while transforming myself into a leader.

Cons

The task of "repairing" our education system can be overwhelming. There is also a struggle to maintain a work life balance the first and second year because there is so much to learn.

    Pros

    Great physical office space, access to lots of resources

    Not uncommon to get a young manager who is still working to achieve their own success...

    Continue to work on retaining/ hiring staff over the age of 30 and staff of color.
