    I have been working at Berkeley County School District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are ok, staff at my school are cordial and helpful. Watching children learn and grow is a great joy!

    Cons

    Testing, testing, testing with no real time to cover material. Behavior issues are the school's problem and not the parent's.

    Advice to Management

    Discipline children who need it by inconveniencing parents until they must take notice. If using PBIS, consider that you're enabling a child for life!

    I worked at Berkeley County School District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    One of the best reason to work in this field is to observe growth in student's performance in class activities.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges of working in education is empathizing with students who strive to learn with personal challenges at home and around school. These students require special motivation.

    Advice to Management

    I understand that upper management have their own challenges which may, in some cases, appear to be in conflict with mine. However, I always strive to work as a team.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Berkeley County School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love teaching the students!

    Cons

    Worst school system I have ever worked for, and I have worked six others in several different states.
    All the principals care about is how they look on paper, not about the students. I love teaching and the only reason I am a teacher is because I love the children and it is my calling. Working for this district has turned me off on teaching. There are other countries close by Berkeley, work there not at Berkeley.
