    I worked at CCSD full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Really enjoyed working with my fellow teachers who were, for the most part very intelligent and friendly. The first principal I worked under was very professional and respected teachers and their time. Most of my students were genuinely fun to teach and get to know.

    Cons

    The district is too top heavy and too large. Too many folks pulling strings from the district office that are not in touch with the issues that face today's teachers. Curriculum is constantly adopted and then changed. Very hard to maintain consistency. Paperwork also started to change and not in a good way. Paperwork that had nothing to do with teaching was taking away from classroom time. Professional development days were a waste of time and not relevant to concerns or issues in the classroom. These are just some of the reasons that ultimately lead to me seeking employment elsewhere in a completely different field. When I resigned (after 6 years of service) did not get so much as an email or phone call asking me why I was leaving. Because? They just don't care. CCSD sees teachers as easily replaceable and do nothing to retain current teachers. For the amount of work and time you put into this job you are left barely able to make ends meet, tired and frustrated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teachers need to have more of a voice. The district needs to pay attention to teachers. When 1/3 of the teachers leave after the first year a new principal is hired that should be a red flag to take a very close look at the new principal. No such luck ... I endured 3 years with said horrible person who had no business being a principal. CCSD finally fired her after 80% of the teachers left three years into her employment (me included).
