Teacher, New York, NY - September 28, 2016
The principal prides herself on being called a four letter word for a German soldier.There is a lot of screaming and yelling at both adults and children alike. So, be warned! Best peers/staff you will ever work with. They are warn, compassionate and understanding but, management is oppressive and focuses on an "I gotcha" policies. You will not be recognized for your efforts and you will get consistently negative feedback. If you are used to getting positive constructive feedback, this may not be a good fit. The academic rigor is great as far as a curriculum scope and sequence. You will bring your work home and you will find yourself working on the weekends. And yes, it's all about the test scores for 3rd-5th grades. The pay is low for a typical Charter school considering the long hours.
