Current Employee - Paraprofessional in Vancouver, WA
Current Employee - Paraprofessional in Vancouver, WA

Pros

Better pay and benefits than other area districts.
Big district with ample transfer options.
Strong union that really does work for individual employee needs.
Most schools are fairly new and are clean working environments.

Cons

Micromanagement by district administrators is too much sometimes. Its as if they don't think teachers and paraprofessionals are smart enough to teach little kids.

Advice to Management

Trust in the intelligence of your instructional staff. Their creativity can produce better results than the latest shiny, new curriculum that you were duped into buying.
