    I worked at Oakland Unified School District full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with the students is fantastic.

    Cons

    Little to no district or campus support for access to resources to help students.

    Advice to Management

    Learn about Special Education. It matters and has an impact on your schools. These are not just the "bad students" that you can ignore and pretend don't need you.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Oakland Unified School District (Oakland, CA).

    Interview

    Had a weird interview where not many questions were asked, so I figured they'd already selected a candidate and went through with my interview anyways. A couple days later, they told me they had, so I thanked them and moved on, only to see the job reposted a couple days later. Ouch.
