    Pros

    Working as a specialist, I learned much with a caseload of multiple diagnoses, which allowed me to explore many different modalities

    Cons

    Being itinerant can be difficult at times, during inclement weather, especially if there are multiple items to carry from the car.

    Pros

    I can't think of anything that would be a "pro"

    Cons

    Unprofessional staff within the schools, principals, office staff, even fellow teachers are very caddy, will stab you in the back at the drop of a hat, basically the rule in this district is to talk about your fellow "team" teachers the minute they walk out of the room. The students don't care, and honestly most of the teachers don't care either. I transferred to another district, a bit further commute but it is worth it, I don't despise going to work everyday and have a solid support system unlike Tacoma. I would absolutely NOT recommend this district to a new teacher, I have known several brand new teachers who wanted to leave by October.
