  1.  

    Enjoyed my time at PCSB and learned a lot, despite some fairly large negatives, it was a good place to work.

    Pros

    Relaxed working environment. Decent benefits. Friendly coworkers. All of this can vary depending on the school however.

    Cons

    Very uncompetitive pay. Often expected to do tasks outside of job description. Beware the "other duties" part of the contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spending critical funds on wasteful projects while people are losing their jobs.

    I love my job, but like most teachers, I am waaaay underpaid. We haven't had a raise in 6 years!

    Current Employee - Art Teacher in Lakeland, FL

    Pros

    The kids are a joy and it is really a pleasure to be able to work with educated professionals every day.

    Cons

    The lack of increase in pay...even if you hold a master's degree... is nauseating. This is the case all over our state, though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP wasting money on all of these learning kits that promise to make our job easier. All they do is waste money, time and creativity.
