    I have been working at Success Academy Charter Schools full-time

    Pros

    Teaching anywhere is a difficult job, but Success makes it much easier for teachers to do their job by providing all lesson plans and materials before hand. This removes the added stress of lesson prep and lets you focus on how to best deliver content to your scholars. Success Academy has also built a well-connected network of teachers and experts who will provide support for you at every turn. Material is shared regularly among teachers, and there is always someone offering help and added support when you need it. Success also greatly values teachers owning their class, so there is a lot of room for you to make your teaching practice yours (this lack of hand-holding might not be ideal for some, especially beginner teachers, but it goes a long way in forming you!). The school network owns training their own teachers, so a degree in education is not required. There are, of course, opportunities for you to get said degree if you want to: the school offers a Master's degree at Hunter College, Besides all of these, personally, I love the curriculum at Success, particularly for science. The way it is made makes science a joy to teach: the emphasis on inquiry, and systems thinking really creates strong scholars. The school's mission, as well, is one that I agree with.

    Cons

    The behavior management system can be difficult to master at first. Behavior management is important, and greatly determines if you will even get through your lesson. But the specific way it is done at Success was tough for me to get behind at first (it does become second nature after a while)
