Pros: meaningful work, great team members, brilliant people
Cons: short breaks, low compensation
Uplift Education is a network with some really brilliant, caring people. However, it is underfunded which hurts the culture of the network because everyone works so hard and the compensation sends the message that the network undervalues its teachers.
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the people around you grow and having some part in the growth and development of the adults of the future. The hardest part is meeting the expectations of several administrators who do not agree while still serving the scholars.
