Teachers are reminded often, it's for the kids. Just a manipulative way to help teachers endure horrible working conditions, lack of resources, poor leaders who only became leaders because they couldn't control their own classroom environments. Cab Co Schools is no different than any other public education system. Work plus "mandatory volunteer" (Involuntary) hours. Poor health and horrific dental benefits. No time for family, especially when a you are a single parent, or a family of educators. A strong lack of compassion and respect except for 1 week a year where they try to stroke our ego for personal and professional gain. There are no advancement opportunities and no discussion about advancement. The mark of great leaders is the development of staff. It is apparent we have very few great leaders. The overall culture is abysmal and it is very sad. The hardest part of the job is when you lose a student to death and there are no resources available to you and you just have to keep trucking on as if nothing has changed. It is beyond me how this school district goes to out of state recruiting events and successfully draws in new talent.
