I have been working at Tacoma Public Schools full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I can't think of anything that would be a "pro"

Cons

Unprofessional staff within the schools, principals, office staff, even fellow teachers are very caddy, will stab you in the back at the drop of a hat, basically the rule in this district is to talk about your fellow "team" teachers the minute they walk out of the room. The students don't care, and honestly most of the teachers don't care either. I transferred to another district, a bit further commute but it is worth it, I don't despise going to work everyday and have a solid support system unlike Tacoma. I would absolutely NOT recommend this district to a new teacher, I have known several brand new teachers who wanted to leave by October.

    Pros

    Benefits, Retirement, Job Security and Paid Holidays

    Cons

    Unions membership with dues whether you want it or not.

    Advice to Management

    Understand what the folks in all departments do each day, the needs of the departments and hire more Secretaries to share the load. Hiring additional MAnagers and Directors does not help the folks who carry out all the necessary tasks day in and day out.
