Pros

They are interested in determining best practice in general education, general education very defined for those who work for Aspire, great benefits, kids are motivatied to learn, access to adequate materials, teacher training, grade level support for general education

Cons

You are part of a system not an individual with strengths and weaknesses to be developed, low tolerance for failure to comply to the way Aspire wants things run. Main focus is high scores on state testing above individual students needs, lack of training and understanding of students with disabilities on the part of the system, not family friendly

Advice to Management

consider looking at developing a balance approach to education that includes history science which will be subject areas for the students to apply and master what they have learned in reading, language arts, math. It will show they have generalized what they have learned to all areas of academia, not just a bubble on a worksheet at 80%. Consider that most of your staffs are made up of women who have many responsiblities in their lives besides work and be a team member with them so they can be successful in life. Understand that people are individuals with life experiences, gifts, and talents that when recognized and developed it is a win win for everyone.

    Pros

    Students always come first at Aspire. Teachers and administrators do their best to serve the students through consistent feedback all around.

    Cons

    Sometimes, the feedback provided on instructional practices and procedures turns into criticism, which can come across as negative, and hardly fosters a feeling of family among the staff. If the staff doesn't feel welcomed into the Aspire family, it can lead to burnout.

  2. They really care about their teachers.
