Challenging work environment; lacked culture of productivity and progress.
Special Educator, Retired (Former Employee) – Jonesboro, GA – September 25, 2013
CCPS was an excellent opportunity to work with dysfunctional young people mainly males. Having also worked in their ICU unit, I gained knowledge of students with Oppositional Defiance Disrder (ODD). After I retired, I kept in touch with a few of the students who did have respect for me. Being the type of educator I am, I extended myself in hope that the students would stray from being so angry and defiant with authority figures. Sadly, the three students I took under my wing ended up in prison.
Professional development that encouraged me to have hope for the students with ODD.
The structure, focus on making a difference, external support from the community, and an alternative program I would call a failure, little teamwork, hardly any collaboration, and addministrative support that would engender an atmosphere that support change.

Each day was very unpredictable, one had to be very flexible but often not given the opportunity to be very creative. One could expect a lot of work outside of work areas and coming in on time off to complete the required task.
