    A lot of hard, unappreciated work.

    I have been working at Pittsburgh Public Schools full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pittsburgh Public Schools provides a challenging experience and allows you to work with inner-city students. In my experience, I have had the opportunity to take on leadership roles, and define my own career. I LOVE the coworkers that worked in my building. I was able to learn a lot from their high-energy and hard-working attitudes.

    Cons

    Throughout my experience, I have felt unappreciated by the administration at the district level. They do not bother to call school cancellations until after all staff members are expected to be at work. They do not make students make up those days of school, but staff members have to make up those hours after school or on Saturdays. (As if, we haven't made up those two days over and over again with the extra hours that we put in.) The district consistently adds more work to our plate that takes us away from doing our jobs as teachers. The people who are often hired for district-level positions are completely out of touch with what really is happening in the classroom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be helpful to the staff of Pittsburgh Public School District to not only a receive heartless mass email thank you, but to see action from the district-level administration that shows their gratitude of what teachers do day-in and day-out.
