Challenging Work place
Co-Teacher/Paraprofessional (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMay 29, 2013
Pros: student and parents
Cons: lack of breaks, classroom management issues, lack of experience working with urban students, and inexperienced administration
When I first started working for the company it was fine. The Principal was generally vested in the students. Once she was replaced with another principal who lacked experience, lacked commitment to the entire student body, and had terrible social skills.

The school commuity needs a lot of work regarding working with urban youth and the issues they – more... face daily. The main problem in the classroom is classroom mangement and lack of experience.

The harderst part of the job is trying to get administration to give the same attention to the special education program which suffered tremendously. Too much focus was put into the general education students.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the students and parents. That is the one great thing I will take away from this job. – less

Instructor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 7, 2013
Perspectives Charter Schools "walks the walk". This unique charter school allowed for teachers to execute their dream curriculum, consequently showing students that learning is fun. Additionally, all teachers were responsible for mentoring a small group of students throughout the school year while educating them on social development needs. PCS had – more... long hours, but because we had input and final say on how to spend those long hours, it didn't seem like work but serving a cause greater than yourself - which made the long hours worth it. – less
