If you have degree, get certified or licensed so you can go into the school system.

ProsFeeling like you a making a difference in the kids lives, whether it's teaching them, helping them with homework, or providing them with love.

The appreciation from the parents that recognize your work and dedication.

ConsThe "project based" curriculum that requires what is sometimes ridiculous amounts of materials, and is expected to be done on a constant, if no day-to-day basis. And a lot of the times (in my case), I don't receive the materials requested.

The pay is low.

The workplace gets very catty/ high-school-like at times, but I'm sure that's everywhere.

Sometimes feel like management doesn't listen to you.

Rules and regulations that are in place, but are violated constantly.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees...the ones who are actually in the classroom with the children on a daily basis.
