I worked at Los Angeles USD

Pros

The largest school district in California means there many resources avaiable. It's all about finding the right school and the right fit for you.

Cons

Don't expect the school district to do much for you. It's so important to have good working relationships with your colleagues and administrators.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get the budget under control. Stop spending money on administrative costs. Teachers are working overtime to compensate and it's not fair to them or the students.

    Pros

    In a year round school, you work 4 months..and get 1 and half months off vacation. It is paid, so you won't worry about not paying rent when you're on vacation. You are the boss in the classroom. You can utilize your own imagination and creativity to make your classroom wonderful. You get off at 3pm, when everyone works till 5 or 6pm. You can also work part time as a tutor after work to compensate for the low pay at this district. You also get all the major holidays off, where most companies only give you time off during Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Cons

    The pressures of test results...and low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat us like equals, not students.
