    Pros

    Really good place to work, the county office understands the challenges on the ground that the teachers face in the school.

    Cons

    Adapt more to growth.. the County has experienced tremendous growth which means to adapt more realistic policies to adapt to such growth.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to your staff

    I have been working at Henry County (Georgia) Schools full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great schedule, Board of Education seems to work together on issues, my principal is easy to work with.

    Cons

    Salary is only once a month. Georgia education is shifting too frequently to get any type of consistency. It is not a county initiative, it is a state initiative. If they would pick one thing to really enforce, then they could stop spending an astronomical amount of money on purchasing new materials, etc. They could use that for more teachers, especially for our exceptional students with more support.

    I have been working at Henry County (Georgia) Schools part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very easy to work with.
    Use a system called subfinder to help you pick up jobs when available, as well as have the system call you in the morning and evening when jobs are available to be picked up.

    Cons

    Well, dealing with kids of course.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    The administrator really love students and wants them to do well. Helpful colleaques, and staff are friendly.

    Cons

    Like every school we have our share of teachers who do not love students. Paper work really gets in the way of instruction at times, and the communication skills of administration is not servant leadership, which I prefer.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with staff faculty before you decide to move them, at least make them think they were part of the process.

    Pros

    One thing about Henry County Schools is that they are constantly looking for ways to make teaching better. Leadership seems to be very supportive of the teachers.

    Cons

    The pay is a little lower than some of the other districts that are closer to downtown Atlanta. In most buildings, it is hard to get cell phone reception.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the software programs used for education should be piloted and reviewed more thoroughly before purchasing them.

    Pros

    Good people working within the schools. Not as hectic as the bigger districts. Out of the city but not too far.

    Cons

    Out of the city but just too far if you really want to take advantage of Atlanta city life. Changing with every whim from the top, trying to prove they're doing something about education.

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep blaming the teachers and don't keep changing the system. Let the teachers teach so the shildren can learn and develop a strong foundation of knowledge and skill.
