    Pros

    Rewarding job and making a difference in children's lives, directors are nice and will work with you on scheduling. Teachers can be creative and implement their own ideas into the curriculum.

    Cons

    Gossip. Low pay, job is physically demanding. Constant turn around with teachers (because of low pay). It is extremely hard to stick to a curriculum (even if you plan one) because they are always short staffed and you can be yanked from your room to cover other teachers on their break or ratios in the classrooms become to high. I absolutely love teaching, but I feel I cannot do my job properly or to the best of my ability when I am yanked from my room in the middle of a project or teaching a lesson, to cover the other classes.

    Advice to Management

    Hire "floaters" to cover lunches, absent teachers and breaks, so that us lead teachers can properly teach these kids without interruptions. This job is physically demanding. The constant turn around with teachers is due to low pay, lead teachers can't stick to their curriculum as expected when they are put in other rooms. Hire floaters and offer better pay to keep your teachers and assistants.
