I have been working at New York City Department of Education full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Where else can you get the opportunity to mold the future? Not wanting to sound like a cliche, but teaching is an extremely rewarding occupation. Along with the hard work and dedication needed to succeed in this profession, comes the satisfaction of making a difference. Staff and administration are different in all schools, and I have been fortunate to have worded with the best.

Cons

Planning and grading are very time consuming.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to offer staff development to all teachers.
