    I worked at Kyrene School District part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with kids is one of the best things anyone can do. It creates an awesome connection, brings out the best in you, and gives you an opportunity to help kids who need it

    Cons

    Working with so many kids is really, really stressful. As great as kids can be, managing just one can be hard enough, let alone 20 or 30 at a time. Furthermore, management can be hard to work with sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more advice from staff and try to hire more CLs so that they don't become overwhelmed.

    I worked at Kyrene School District full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with kids everyday is not a problem. It all depends who your boss is but you mostly make the most of your job with the work you put into it

    Cons

    Upper Managements focus isn't on the kids as much as it is on the parents. I get that parents are the ones paying for the program but ultimately they will pay what they need to pay as long as the clients (kids) are having a good time. Upper management needs to worry about the parents and let the ones who deal with the kids daily do what they need to do to ensure the kids are having a safe and fun time

    I worked at Kyrene School District

    Pros

    Great technology resources. Good continuing education opportunities for teachers.

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on maintaining the 'Kyrene Image' of being the best district in AZ. Reality is sometimes ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focussed on what the real life is like in the trenches.

    Pros

    Excellent Teachers, they are all top-notch educators...you can learn a lot working here. Lots of parent involvement as well.
    Their use of career ladder is a great incentive for teachers to make more money.
    Low class sizes (ratio for k-3 was 20 to 1)
    Overall, decent pay for teachers...and, they like teachers to move around between buildings...good for building your career and reputation

    Cons

    Not many...you do need to work harder and be more involved than at other districts (with commitees)
    Large district...hard to feel more than a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve teachers more when it comes to major decisions affecting the entire district (financially)
    Create more financial incentives for teachers to advance academically in their field (offer stipends for classes)
