    Pros

    The kids are awesome. They just need love. I believe in public education and I think we are going in the right direction.

    Cons

    Overcrowded classrooms, some schools need major repairs, technology training needed for veteran teachers.

    Advice to Management

    Let's see some change. Don't be afraid to think outside the box and let new ideas flow in. Traditional education is not working for our non-traditional students.

    I have been working at Los Angeles USD (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities within LAUSD to move to a different position. No work on weekends. If you actually become a teacher or are salaried you have a chance to still be paid during the summer and winter break.

    Cons

    Not being salaried always leaves you looking for a part time job during vacation time. No real support to workers. Wages seem unfair at times due to the amount of work it takes to do some of the jobs. Being required to be in school for a job limits the hiring process and puts more work on other employees

    Advice to Management

    Protect your workers better and they will work harder. Give ample support when necessary and be surecto

    I worked at Los Angeles USD part-time

    Pros

    Working with children is rewarding

    Cons

    I worked as a TA and they ended up giving me my own intervention classroom. I was working on getting my credentialing, but was told finding placement was tough and not guaranteed. Felt like I wasted two years for nothing.

    I worked at Los Angeles USD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of its schools and leaders are very strong. Placement matters! If you find a good place, you'll see that teachers are happy and staff retention is strong.

    Cons

    The opposite is also true - some schools and leaders are very weak.

    Advice to Management

    If teachers have a voice, they are happy and will stick around. Happy teachers, happy kids.

    Pros

    There are many different assignment types to apply for each year requiring different skill sets.
    This keeps anyone from getting bored with the job. Benefits are paid for by the district. And good pay!

    Cons

    Various coordinators over the years. Changes in policy frequently. Changes in schedule and basis each year it seems... without much warning.

    Working and playing with kids makes you feel young again.

    My position was more of a fill-in job so they only needed me whenever someone called out :(

    Nothing. The people i've dealt with were awesome.
