Head Teacher Reviews

What is it like working as a Head Teacher?

Head Teacher in Port St. Lucie:
Pros: I love the students and teachers I work with everyday. I like the distance from my house and the area. We are currently an A school.
Cons: I do not like that this school pay less than the district schools. I am not fond of the owners of the school based on the workload they give to administration. I do not like how the principal seems not to care.
