    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Chicago Public Schools full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Being a substitute works with your schedule and will pay the bills. You get to experience different cultures and meet many great teachers and children. Health care package and benefits are the best.

    Cons

    Your position is difficult because you are entering a classroom with no prior knowledge of students (which is what comes with a substitute position). More recently I have experienced classrooms where the teacher(s) do not want help because of the lack of knowledge of student needs and you sort of just sit/stand around waiting to be useful. It makes you feel useless and not at all acknowledged as a professional. While the compensation pays the bills, we can definitely benefit from additional compensation with the wages rising nationwide.
