    I worked at Berkeley County School District full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    One of the best reason to work in this field is to observe growth in student's performance in class activities.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges of working in education is empathizing with students who strive to learn with personal challenges at home and around school. These students require special motivation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand that upper management have their own challenges which may, in some cases, appear to be in conflict with mine. However, I always strive to work as a team.

    I worked at Berkeley County School District full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I love teaching the students!

    Cons

    Worst school system I have ever worked for, and I have worked six others in several different states.
    All the principals care about is how they look on paper, not about the students. I love teaching and the only reason I am a teacher is because I love the children and it is my calling. Working for this district has turned me off on teaching. There are other countries close by Berkeley, work there not at Berkeley.

    I have been working at Berkeley County School District

    Pros

    The district is small with only 4 highschools so consistency across the district is good. Teachers are very professional and have a real caring for their students and a desire to want them to succeed. Communication between various departments is also good - guidance supports the teachers and the administration provides for good working relationships between all parties.

    Cons

    Finances are somewhat limited nad technology is not evenly distributed among the departments but I suspect this is a problem in most schools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to the teachers in the classroom.
