Pros

Family friendly schedule, atmosphere of passionate staff members, summer vacation, all major holidays off, large work space for those who don't want to be confined to a cubicle, seeing day to day growth in students, a great opportunity for those who enjoy working with children.

Cons

Low salary with no opportunity for growth, large class sizes, money spent out of pocket for classroom supplies, constantly required to meet new standards or conform to new procedures.

    Pros

    Extremely gratifying to help young students learn. Hours work with my family's schedule. Great insight into the education system. Better understanding of our diverse community.

    Cons

    On occasion you have to deal with very unruly students and it doesn't appear that there is much in the way of discipline for being disrespectful or displaying poor behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your teachers! Provide more assistance to those teachers who are dealing with such a diverse group of students who require such a wide variety of special needs.
