    Pros

    Great for networking, fast track to school leadership, work with diverse groups.

    Cons

    Teaching isn't for everyone, but if you love it then the only con is working in schools where there standards are not as high as they should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be as candid as possible about everything. Not that anyone purposely wasn't, but I think you should make a point of it.
