    I have been working at Catalina Foothills School District (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to train as a teacher; lots of professional development opportunities; cutting-edge, research-driven instruction & high use of latest technology; well-kept facilities & lower class sizes; generally supportive & friendly staff (depending on your school site); OK salary & benefits package; extra funds provided to reimburse out-of-pocket costs for classroom supplies

    Cons

    Very demanding & time-consuming responsibilities; expect to spend lots of your own time planning/grading, plus attending various school events; very high level of parental involvement (both positive & negative); extremely tight level of district control over what you can & can't do in the classroom; very limited opportunities for upward career growth; can be difficult to get time-off when needed; students from mostly wealthy families sometimes have elitist attitudes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let wealthy parents scare you into creating overly-restrictive policies based on a single negative incident. Let good current employees know about upcoming job openings before they are advertised to the public to avoid losing good people who may want a change.
