Suggestions for improvement

  • Provide more support for teachers when dealing with student and parent problems. Also the teacher evaluation system has been spotty in its application and the new revamped system does not take into account all the issues of student performance on state tests.

What I like about the company

This is my first full-time teaching experience so the experience has been good. However, I know from other teachers that this school rates its teacher harshly and much lower than other county schools.

What I dislike about the company

I think admin is bad about micro-managing its teachers; they expect too much from the teachers. They do not provide enough support for teachers when we are dealing with student concerns (both academic and behavioral).

Suggestions for improvement

  • I suggest making informal walkthroughs a small part of the evaluation rubric. It would make me personally feel that administration is taking a more active role in ensuring my best performance.

What I like about the company

The new teacher coaches are always happy to help and offer advice. The curriculum is almost pre-designed depending on the subject area. There is enough professional development built into the professional days that you will meet your qualifications for re-certification. There is a togetherness event almost once a month, and most meetings involve free snacks.

What I dislike about the company

The administration could be more proactive and involved with discipline issues. More than one administrator should be present during transitions. When administration walks through, they should email some sort of positive or negative feedback or informal evaluation. The evaluation process should involve more than just one formal evaluation, as is normal in most other schools in the surrounding areas. Administration should have been more proactive in correcting the broken evaluation rubrics. Administration should stop firing people at Christmas, and especially not until a replacement has been lined up.
