I have been working at Clark County School District part-time (More than a year)RecommendsNegative OutlookRecommendsNegative Outlook
Working with students is amazing. Once in a while, I get that "lightbulb moment" from a student and it makes teaching, even as a sub, worthwhile.
Instability of work. There is no work during school breaks, meaning no pay. At the beginning and end of the school year, work is hard to find.
Advice to Management
Offer benefits and break time work options for subs.

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Clark County School District.
I applied during my last semester as an undergrad at UNLV. CCSD sent current principals out to UNLV and they asked us general questions like "why do you want to be a teacher?" I was lucky because I personally knew the principal who conducted my interview from the high school in which I graduated (she offered me a job teaching at her school and I made the biggest decision of my life when I declined it).
They let you know within a week if you were hired, then you begin spending lots of money by paying for background checks, teaching license, etc.
After spending all the money you received for graduating college, you go to new teacher orientations which consists of weeks of driving all across the Vegas valley to hear seminars and speeches from people who just received thousands of dollars along with a stipend (to gamble of course or purchase hookers... I mean escorts) from the Clark County School District.
An administrator (or the admin secretary) will hand you the keys to your new classroom and then you'll have to go out and spend even more money to have proper supplies and posters/décor for the first day of school due to tremendous budget cuts in public education.

There was no negotiation phase; the Clark County School District is always desperate for teachers due to their extremely high teacher turnover rate.
