Pros

It is a very laid-back environment and is an extremely awarding job! I look forward to going into work every morning. The hours are great too. 7-4, 8-5, or 9-6 Monday through Friday.

Cons

There is not really much room for moving up in the company unless you apply for a position in corporate.

Advice to Management

Offer more personal feedback instead of just advice on how to appease DHS and child services. Also, offer raises to employees who deserve them.

    Pros

    -In public schools, you may have 30 students. I taught kindergarten at The Goddard School, and the maximum amount of students I could have was 15.
    -It was easy to get to know everyone as it is a small school.
    -Good experience for teachers that have just graduated and need some experience

    Cons

    -The pay is AWFUL! When I started, lead teachers were offered anywhere from $9-12/hr. For someone that has a teaching degree, this is a very small amount of money to be made. I calculated that if I worked 40 hours a week 52 weeks a year, I would be making just over $20,000 a year. Pretty bad compared to an average teacher's beginning salary of $30-35,000 for 36 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Most Goddard Schools I know have a high turnover rate for teachers. The school is pretty expensive to attend, so paying the teachers a little more would help with the turnover rate.
