I worked at West Des Moines Community Schools (More than 3 years)

Pros

High quality of teachers, newer technology, most students motivated to learn.

Cons

Public school district...hands tied by bureaucracy sometimes...not able to always get rid of under-performing teachers. Sometimes it is "who you know" rather than "what you know".

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits package, time off, and breaks during the school year.

    Cons

    Very little pay for the hazards of the job, too much negativity, incessant gossiping by teachers and staff. Very little real leadership from the teachers.

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on the gossip and back stabbing and reprimand the teachers for allowing it to continue in their classrooms.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at West Des Moines Community Schools full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Positive educational community, opportunities for professional development with compensation, embraces teacher leadership programming, suburb of a top ten metro area, quality materials and facilities

    Cons

    I can't think of anything I would consider a con within the district. Wish it was more diversified, but diversity is growing quickly, and the district is conducting cutting edge equity research to allow for the best learning environment for all students--bravo WDMCS!

    Advice to Management

    I love working and living in West Des Moines
