Former Employee - Classroom Teacher in Modesto, CA
Former Employee - Classroom Teacher in Modesto, CA

I worked at Modesto City Schools full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent pay and working conditions due to strong union

Cons

Much incompetence in leadership as the only way to make good money is to become a principal or above

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the students, not your superiors. You've forgotten who you work for.
