    Pros

    I enjoyed knowing that what I was doing was expanding children's futures. When my children were young I was able to keep up with the education system with my job that would benefit their learning.

    Cons

    I was disappointed about not being able to get in more on the job training due to budget issues.

    Pros

    Sadly, nothing, and I've seriously tried to think up something positive.

    Cons

    Lack of support and lack of structure - the student population and the administration were so incompatible with each other. I had no resources. I was isolated in a T building with not enough desks or space for all my students who did things like rip up the walls without repercussions. I genuinely felt unsafe in the workplace, and genuinely, nobody cared.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When over half a dozen teachers quit in the middle of a semester, that should be your wake up call that something is very wrong with your school.

    Pros

    Rich heritage, university town, wealthy families. Lafayette could be the BEST school system in the state. Large population with very low unemployment should bring a high tax base with the best teachers in the state.

    Cons

    Incompetent, good old boys network. The last string of superintendents have made Lafayette Parish a laughing stock. The first pushed us back into a desegregation lawsuit that costs multi-millions to get out of. Next one put in yes men all over the parish, then had his contract bought out. Next one was a good old boy that hired all retired people to come back to the system. The one now is getting his friends from New Orleans who don't have high school diplomas to be "supervisors". . Check it out, its all true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit and get qualified people to run the school system
