Special Education Teacher at Macomb Intermediate School District
almost 3 years ago
The MISD oversees nearly 30 schools, so my day in the life would be vastly different than many other teachers throughout the district. However, I would say that at the MISD, unlike at many other districts, morale is high. The MISD pays their teachers well, and they reach a new step annual. Many other surrounding districts were on a pay-freeze for years, and they also added half-steps to their pay increases. I've heard of surrounding districts doing half-steps and even third-steps.
I feel very supported by my administrators. I feel safe and comfortable. When I do something special, like make a video for the school, or create a game for the school, or do anything above and beyond, they are incredible about showing their gratitude and paying compliments. I have thoroughly enjoyed my short career within the MISD.
