Change is the only constant
As a developing network of schools, SPARK was constantly changing and adapting while I was there. In some ways this was fun and exciting but in others it was highly frustrating. One thing I can compliment SPARK on was the curriculum, I taught Mathematics and we followed the PRIME textbook.
Pros
Great salary
Cons
long hours, no school counselor.

Great workplace
Start the day with SPARKs fly (morning assesmbly) then transition to the first class at 8 which runs for an hour and 40 minutesthen a break for 20 minutes. Second class starts at 10 till 11.30 then the next class at 11.30 to 12.
Then it is LUNCH TIME for 40 minutes

After that I have the class I had before lunch for the next 40 minutes then another 30 minute break.

Last class starts at 2 until 3.30pm then it is dismissal where kids are sent home.

4pm it is prep time till 4.30pm.


I have learned to be productive and consistent during the course of the long day, the hardest part was to stay focused especially when I just started. The working environment was great,communication has always been amazing.
Pros
2 breaks
Cons
Long hours
