Co-workers are awesome, but there's not a lot of management support. Reactive instead of proactive
What I like
Watching students grow, being able to do what they need instead of following a strict calendar.
What I dislike
The new curriculum calendar was implemented with very little training or thought, has huge holes in what kids are expected to know going in, and doesn't work without collaboration. There is no progress analysis being done--it's just full speed ahead. Also, very little input from the line teachers.
Suggestions for improvement
Remove superintendent and curriculum director, and go back to having a real curriculum that is research-based, not one that is based on teacher whim.
