Hi everyone! I am student teaching at a school that is considered "at risk" due to not meeting standards. The school has a high minority and low income student population. I love my CT, and we get along great. Yesterday, the principal offered me a job at the school next year at the same grade. Another teacher is moving away and there will be a vacancy. Everyone has been telling me to avoid these types of schools during my first couple of years due to the pressures. The pro's of working there would be: I love the kids, I want to use the incentive of working there and having the district pay for my masters, I think that it would be a great learning opportunity for me, and the district offers a hefty sign on bonus and more pay. The con's: the scripted programs, the pressure at working at this type of school, the distance from my house, the lack of parental support. Has anyone eer been in this type of situation? Any advice?
