Outstanding organization and not allow gossip and politics to influence decision making.
Pros: structured, organized, teamspirit, student development, and support.
Cons: gossip, politics.
The SMCOE has been the best educational organization that I have worked as a Special Education Teacher. My experience collaborating with colleagues and special services professionals was inspiring and influenced my own professional development. Gossip and politics were practiced amongst a few employees, which influenced decisions and responses by members of the Chain of Command. Those engaging in gossip and politics were taken as credible at the expense of professionals who were telling the truth. My overall rating for the SMCOE is outstanding (5 stars), and I would work for the organization again without hesitation.
