Pros: place to make a difference
Cons: be prepared to work hard for little compensation
I worked at the Ombudsman Accelerated Program as an 8th grade math teacher for a short time. I was with the students from 7:15 am until 3:00 pm with only a 30 minute lunch break.
There is no planning time allotted during the school day. Most of a teacher's planning and grading is done on their own time. The program uses a computer base curriculum but teachers have to supplement lessons and CRCT review.
All subject area teachers are expected to help with Math and Reading programs and review for all CRCT reviews.
