    Once you start to Substitute Teach and create a relationship with the teachers it really helps because they can see that you are a hard worker and you can become more in demand.

    The start and end of the year is very slow, as it should be.

    Pros

    The opportunity to work with some amazing and talented staff. The time off! The programs we offer to our students.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, not everyone who works here truly care about what is best for students. A lot of cattiness behavior among key positions. Keep individuals in these positions knowing the history and problems they incur.

    Advice to Management

    Move in to the future of education. Instead of stomping your feet regarding the inequities of funding, make this district great again and be innovative to truly make our families want to stay within our district.
