I was a teacher at UCP... Awful place to work, I'm still in shock two years later. They over enrolled, made you create curriculum from scratch (and revise it over and over), hardly any planning unless you show up early, wickedly rude co-directors towards staff, condescending founders, and I was the art program for my class (no art teacher). The staff turnover for teachers was 100% from the onset of summer training (in which you begin around mid-July and go until the school year begins). Now they're saying you don't even need a teaching license to work there. This is probably because they burned through all of the certified candidates who needed a job. There is one excellent charter school network in NE Ohio, but the I Can network is definitely not it. Not even close.
