    Pros

    It’s great if you love to teach and you love instilling values in young minds. Teachers commit because they love the kids- not because of pay.

    Cons

    Not always sure of expectations. Communication is lacking.

    Fast Track to a Teaching Position

    Pros

    Great way to fast track into a teaching role. You are trained on the job as an intern first and then given your own classroom to teach.

    Cons

    I constantly felt like I was being watched with everything I did and it felt more like I was selling a product rather than just teaching and being there for the kids.
