    I worked at National Heritage Academies full-time

    Pros

    I was challenged in my character and career, which helped me become a better person and teacher.

    Cons

    I didn't have support from the Principal, my authority was undermined in front of the students, there weren't any disciplinary actions taken so students got away with anything and everything.

    Advice to Management

    Support your teachers, especially the new teachers, do not undermine teacher's authority especially in front of students, and make sure to enforce disciplinary action when needed.

    I worked at National Heritage Academies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At National Heritage Academies Service Center (headquarters) in Grand Rapids, Michigan was a great working environment. The teams I was a part of were incredibly supportive and had an emphasis on constructive feedback with managers.

    Cons

    There was a conceited atmosphere around the service center when it came to educational professionals in the organization. The for profit business model in NHA has always been a point of concern for me. Profiting off a public service where your sole purpose is to be helping disadvantaged youth seems contradictory.
