    Pros

    The students and families are the best thing about this career. To see a student succeed is a wonderful thing.

    Cons

    The total lack of support from the school district offices to the schools. The way the district treats its employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your employees. A district office that adds more and more restrictions on what can be done. For every unit of accountability there has to be a unit of support.
