    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Hanover County Public Schools full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very supportive colleagues, great professional atmosphere -- at Hanover High School, at least -- with plenty of PD opportunities, competitive salaries for the area.

    Cons

    Very high expectations of newer teachers, arguably too high. Usual complaints about profession -- significant time outside of classroom required to stay on top of all the paperwork, low pay for the amount and caliber of work, etc.

    I worked at Hanover County Public Schools full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good administrative team at the time, although changes are often. Kids were better than average. Teachers were professional and self-motivated.

    Cons

    Overtime for no extra pay. There's always a few disciplinary issues...but it's to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Plenty of incentives for a job well done. Remember, teachers are isolated from other adults much of the day. A little positive interaction goes a long way.

    I worked at Hanover County Public Schools full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Just an average place to work.

    Cons

    Their human resources department is very dishonest, will hide the fact that they only offer temporary position that is written on the contract. Nothing about "temporary" will be mentioned during interview, and before you received the contract.

    Advice to Management

    Give people the facts regarding job positions.
