    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Putnam/Northern Westchester BOCES full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The kids are wonderful, the hours are great. Good benefits, and opportunities to connect with families to work with outside of school hours.

    Cons

    Politics, leadership has little interaction with students, lack of protocol for coworker disagreements about educational approaches

    Advice to Management

    Be more present. Get to know the kids and the families. Show up more frequently than just the events that are being photographed for the website and media.
