    Pros

    A larger county, so there is some flexibility with where you live. Many different services available. Large staff.

    Cons

    Poor communication between higher staff and teachers. Increasing turnover rate for things like specialists (interpreters, special education specialists, etc).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. You can't make everyone happy, but if someone states they are good/bad at something and they would/would not be a good fit for a position... believe them.
