    I worked at Vancouver Public Schools part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It was easy to get hired on as a sub, and I worked with many wonderfully competent teachers and paras for kids with special needs.

    Cons

    Some substitute teachers were totally unqualified to handle special needs classrooms and let the kids go without schedules or guidance at all.
    Once you're hired as a sub, you have to stay long enough at one school to get an administrator to recommend you. Good luck if you work exclusively short-term gigs or at a school where the administrator quits. If you find yourself in this spot, you're effectively *barred* from permanent employment till you can get an endorsement--even if you've got recommendations from teachers and former employers. Better not to sub at all if you know you're going for a permanent positions soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Include an "administrator approval" exception for people that subbed in short-term positions exclusively and/or have recommendations from teachers they worked with.
