    I worked at Irvine Unified School District full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is a great community of teachers that you can build relationships with throughout the district. IUSD's decentralized practices allow teachers flexibility in their practice. There are often opportunities for learning and growth.

    Cons

    The decentralization of the district means that finding the best resources can be difficult. You can be on your own in finding out how to implement best practices, as IUSD wants to inspire you to achieve great things, but doesn't have a streamlined way to support you in doing so. A lot of responsibility is put on teachers for moving the profession forward within IUSD without IUSD backing that up with policy changes, systemic change, or communication to the parent community. You are expected to always go above and beyond for students without the full support of district resources. In addition, academic achievement is prioritized over social emotional well being of students, and teachers are not given enough support to meet their student's needs.
