Single, Driven, and New to Teaching is the ideal candidate
Dean (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – June 14, 2018
Ascend is a charter school network constantly opening new schools which provides for more opportunities for those who are career-driven and looking to enhance their resumes with advancement to leadership. The turnover is high in many of their schools and there may be practices that seasoned teachers may not easily adapt to. If you want a home-work balance, forget it. There are many last minute assignments and events you will be asked to attend and there are many deadlines and protocols to follow from Day 1 which starts in August of each year. Only the single, driven, and meticulously organized survived while I was there. Many with families left early in the year due to being overwhelmed. Compensation is what also keeps the teachers and leadership working there as it is excellent with great benefits.
