  3. "Substitute Teacher"

    I have been working at Clark County School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to see a broad spectrum of education in a large city. Flexible schedule. Occasional pleasant surprises (assemblies, concerts, drama performances, presentations). Sometimes have the opportunity to educate students. Potential for strong intangible benefits.

    Cons

    Highly varied quality of schools and administrators. Low pay and no benefits. No work during the summer. No way to know quality of school until you actually substitute there. Little to no feedback.

    Advice to Management

    How you treat your substitutes (especially the long-termers) is a strong reflection of your school. Some substitutes are very well educated and should not be considered babysitters. Well-behaved students do not start misbehaving just because there is a substitute.

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

    Pros

    job security, holidays off, 6 weeks in summer off

    Cons

    Classes are oversized. Kids with major behavior problems, often violent, are placed in regular classrooms. Special needs kids (autism, learning disabilities) placed in regular classrooms. You get one SPED aide , not trained all that well, to work with 3+ students with significantly different issues. no budget, no texts, you have to beg for copy paper and office supplies. The biggest goal is getting kids to pass SBACs, so you teach to the test.

    Advice to Management

    Pay less to corporate and admin, put more toward curriculum, kids, and teachers. More emphasis on learning and less on passing tests. We need more funding.


  5. "Teacher"

    Pros

    Colleagues, students, schedule, growth opportunities, supports recent College graduates

    Cons

    Budget Cuts, students, all depends on the individual school or administrator you work for. Not all schools are created equal.

    Advice to Management

    Administration is too top heavy at the headquarters.

    Pros

    It's a job. Seriously though, it's great to be the one stable, supportive point in the lives of many students, and it's awesome to get kids to love to learn.

    Cons

    Ugh, where do I start? Extremely low pay; no benefits; no direction, no support from fellow teachers. Want to be a better teacher? Figure it out on your own. Serious lack of respect for what you do and the effort you invest (not from the students!)

    Advice to Management

    Fairly compensate teachers; better balance from school to school (in every aspect); smaller class sizes; teacher/student stress should be lower.

    Pros

    It is a very satisfying job! Helping students learn accidemics and social life skills, and watching them succeed.

    Cons

    It is only a 9 month job and you don’t get paid for the other 3 months of the year.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoy the (management) administration we have here at the school I work for. They treat all employees equally.
