    I have been working at Horizon Science Academy - Toledo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The experience of teaching at school with various challenges as listed below to find out what is best teaching environment in which to work in the future.

    Cons

    Parent/Teacher Organization with as much as 3 parents in attendance all year. Lack of promotion from administrators of a spirit of cooperation between teachers. Unfriendly teaching staff, cliquish. Low expectations of students expressed by some teachers. Lack of supervision of primary grade students during lunch time to help students learn how to sit at a table calmly and cooperatively. Lack of consistent first year teacher support.

    Advice to Management

    Set up cafeteria for supervision of students who are left outside in frigid weather instead of leaving students outside. Promote a culture of cooperation between all staff, administration and teachers. Teach students how to pass through halls quietly between classes. Do research on "school-to-prison pipeline" discussions and the reasons students are disciplined at HSAT with suspensions. During professional development days for teachers have mandatory workshops dealing with race, religion, gender, class differences between administrators, staff, teachers and students.

    I have been working at Horizon Science Academy - Toledo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good staff support, consistent schedule, summer vacation, small class sizes. Also, there were opportunities to start after school clubs. Lots of communication with parents.

    Cons

    No staff bathroom, some staff were hard to understand due to thick foreign accents. 1 year contract, no guarantee of returning following year.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to have seen more clinics on classroom management. That was an area where I was lacking, and I never really got a good sense of control of my classroom.
