Pros: extracurricular activities
Cons: not enough planning time for teachers--meetings, conferences, and making copies take up most of the time throughout the week--sometimes no planning time at all.
Workdays are great with many fun-filled activities and surprises for students to participate in throughout the school year. Diverse population of students that are genuinely respectful and eager to learn. Never had any management problems since I have been teaching. My co-workers have been supportive and helpful. The hardest part of the job would be to raise the scores for some students that are below-basic in reading or math. The most enjoyable part of working in Kershaw County schools would be the students and parents because they are very interested in their education and want to succeed.
