    I worked at Memphis City Schools full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Location & the benefit of educating youth because that's where the seed of society has its roots. I'm educated and more than willing to inspire future members of society to work to their fullest capacity to help spread the knowledge of a tenacious work ethic.

    Cons

    I honestly don't have any foreseeable cons for the position. As I mentioned, the benefits of educating youth is where everything begins

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Orff is a great way to teach kids music. The time I spent teaching I loved.

    Cons

    Bad discipline, rude to children, proper grammar wasn't used, parents were not involved unless they were hostile and felt you were not being fair to their child

    Advice to Management

    offer more realistic classroom management professional learning; develop more programs in the community to become a part of it.
