Payscale/Benefits packeage is significantly lower than many other states, or even nearby Florida counties
Cost of living raises, steps and raises are not guaranteed each year.
The best thing is the vacation time and time away from work. I receive 19 vacation days per year, 5 sick and 5 personal. Often I am unable to use this amount of time due to the existence of multiple breaks in the school year and the demands at work. The worst thing is the decreasing quality of the health benefits. The package has crumbled over the last 10 years from a great package to sub par.
Very comprehensive package, and great for individuals and 2 married partners working for the schools. Rather expensive for single parents.
