      Where teacher creativity dies.

      Pros

      Salary and benefits are decent, but not enough to live within the county on one teachers salary.

      Cons

      Parents have national reporters (Tucker Carlson, etc.) on speed dial and reporters are in the parent groups on Facebook. We make national headlines far too often. Because administration wants to avoid the news, they bend every loud parent demand. Every assignment you give has to be identical to every member of your team (so that parents don’t complain/ask for their kid to be switched to another class). There’s no room for creative differences, only negotiating the least objectionable activities (multiple choice tests/quizzes). If you’re a creative teacher looking for a new home - look elsewhere until Loudoun figures out how to find it’s way back to what’s best for students, not just avoiding headaches.

      Pros

      Healthcare is good. Hours are great for people with kids of their own.

      Cons

      Pay is low considering all the extra work needed outside of contract hours. Then the meetings, bathroom duties, bus duties, parent interactions, committees and coerced volunteering...

      Pros

      On a good day, teaching can be the most fulfilling job you ever have. For the most part, kids in Loudoun are respectful and driven to succeed.

      Cons

      The pressure to give higher grades than are deserved is real. Too many loudmouthed parents are ruining the district for everyone.
