Seeing students everyday and watching them learn and grow can be very rewarding. Fellow teachers are dedicated and hardworking, most of them would do anything to help our students.
Administration is unsupportive and ineffective from principals through central offices. School is understaffed with several unfilled teaching positions at any given time. Teachers leave due to burnout from unreasonable teaching loads, large class sizes, safety concerns and poor working conditions.
Advice to Management
Support teachers, give them time to grade, plan, and grow professionally through self-directed professional development. Properly account for district funds and allocate them for the betterment of the education of our students, not for the lining of administrative pockets.
