Company Culture

Teachers are overloaded with responsibilities that take time away from preparing and delivering awesome lessons.

Support from management

This depends entirely on who the leadership is and who is assigned as your appraiser. In my experience, about 20% of the leadership staff is great and 20% are awful.

Teamwork

PLC time is often wasted with announcements and personal conversations that do not empower instruction. I once sat in a meeting where the Educational Specialist over the English Department used up 10 minutes to explain her husbands bypass operation in great graphic detail.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Allow teachers to have more autonomy. There is far too much micromanagement. Campuses that aren't overly wealthy or overly poor get forgotten as far as monetary decisions are concerned. Our technology is also very dated.

What I like about the company

I work for a wonderful campus that has very involved parents. Many of the teachers have been at the campus for more than 10 years. These are things that can make a year easier. That being said, not all campuses are like mine. Many campuses are staffed with brand new teachers year after year rather than retaining veteran teachers who can help provide guidance. I have been blessed.
