As a teacher, what are the major plus points for working here?
As a teacher.... none.
What areas do you feel are in need of development?
Management
What advice would you give to other teachers considering working at this school?
If you don't care about teaching at all and want to be done with work at 2:20 sharp then this is the place for you. If you care about your students and your development, there are so many more schools in the world!
