Suggestions for improvement

  • Consistency in desired outcome for students

What I like about the company

I am a high school science teacher I have taught for 26 years this year most of which is in my current position. I enjoy my other teachers at my school and the challenge that my students enherently have. When a teacher is able to reach a student and change there life it is an awesome feeling and the fact that I can have rhat power is a great responsibility. I have directed many students to higher stages in their lives and am very proactive off them.

What I dislike about the company

The inner workings of curriculum change regularly a student to be able to determine their level of achievement must follow same program for the life of their education Pre to 12, but due to constant changing that never happens
