I worked at Chandler Unified School District

Pros

Great benefits, nice classrooms, lots of teacher resources, great support from principals, the ability to work for one of the highest paying districts in the Phoenix area.

Cons

My experience with CUSD was very up and down. My first three years were great, but when the program I was working for was forced to close due to budget cuts, I was transferred to another location. There I felt as though I was a threat to many of the teachers who had been working there for sometime, and as though my opinion didn't matter. After having taught for ten years, and then being treated as though I was a brand new teacher, I felt frustrated and saddened. After a tough year of having to "prove myself" I was ready to leave the teaching field in search of something else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Often times teachers become too comfortable in their positions and become negative or complacent. I feel strongly as though some encouragement to move around grade levels would be beneficial to all.

    I have been working at Chandler Unified School District

    Pros

    Pay for this position is on the higher scale for this type of job. Other bus drivers are generally pretty nice.

    Cons

    Split shift.... You work in the morning have to clock out and then work in the afternoon. There were no really full time positions. Not guaranteed 40hr unless you were admistrative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more empathetic

    Support your teachers, it's good for morale. Cave to every parent's whim and watch as the good teachers leave.
