    I have been working at Noble Network of Charter Schools full-time

    Pros

    At Noble, I immediately felt like I was part of the team, embraced with open arms. I felt cared about in my capacity as a teacher of our students for the good of their success, but also as a human myself, on a personal level, and I cannot stress enough how much that has meant to me and how it has positively effected my work experience. Noble also has unbelievable support systems, and each student's experience is carefully considered by a team of people who specialize in each aspect of school life. Noble hires incredible people, then has amazing opportunities for those people to grow in their role, as well as to branch out into other roles in the school and network as well.

    Cons

    Everyone at Noble is extraordinarily committed to our kids, our school, and our network. Along with this comes a commitment to personal growth and to putting in the time it takes to best serve our students.

    Vet Principals and all leadership members. Some are incredibly strong while others sometimes feel like they got there because they "put the time in".

    Pros

    If you are impassioned to generate better outcomes for historically underserved communities, this is the organization for you. The mission is clear and the systems and supports are in place in order to achieve the vision. I enjoy teaching in an environment that is structured and where the messaging is clear and consistent.

    Cons

    The pay is not commensurate to the amount of time and energy required to feel successful and is less than what would be paid at a CPS school.
