Pros

I enjoyed my time at Marana School District. I met a lot of great co workers and felt like I was appreciated.

Cons

Normal office politics were somewhat annoying at times. Also the way the front offices handled certain issues was disappointing, and not in the best interest of the students.

Advice to Management

Learn to effectively communicate.

    Pros

    - Very friendly teachers and staff.
    - Very supportive of family-related events that may take you away from work.
    - Time is very flexible as far as when you come in and when you leave (given that you are there during the school day, of course!)

    Cons

    - No room for advancement - where would you advance to??
    - If you are a young teacher, you may have difficulty making it into the inner-circle, as everyone is a bit older with children.
    - Any raise you get is less than inflation. You better have help with your bills...this is a volunteer job with a stipend.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize various skills among the staff and teacher to recognize the many attributes among staff. Stop changing the motto, the goal, etc.; there always seems to be a new book out that leads the change movement, but it never changes anything because staff knows it's just a passing fad.


  2. Excellent leadership and professional growth.
