I have been working at New York City Department of Education full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Benefits are amazing
- Good work-life balance due to vacation time

Cons

- While the work year may be short, don't underestimate the stress of working in the city environment
- There's a lot of politics because everyone is under so much pressure to perform

Advice to ManagementAdvice

support first-year teachers -- don't be the gotcha squad

    I have been working at New York City Department of Education full-time for 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.
