    Very difficult job that only gets harder while your pay stays the same.

    I have been working at Miami Dade Public Schools full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Satisfaction of helping kids. Plenty of time off.

    Cons

    I teach middle school math. Very difficult to teach kids who literally cannot do basic math (adding, subtracting, multiplying, division)... Who do not care. I have to deal with kids with major behavioral problems and complete lack of respect and discipline. No support from home. Often times very little support from administration and in many cases it seems like the administration is against you as well. Take my advice and do not consider becoming a public school teacher. And yes you get plenty of time off but you will be so burned out all the time that you will need the time off just to recover from your poor health.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat teachers with the respect they deserve. Stop micromanaging them and wasting their time with pointless meeting that waste taxpayer's money and prevent teachers from getting real work done.
