    There are so many schools in that district. Research the area and administration to find a good fit for your teaching style.

    I worked at Orange County Schools full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great teachers-they care very much about the kids!

    Cons

    Good reputation due to great teachers-people with administrative cover up problems rather than fix them-the behavior seems to be rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest when hiring people-DO NOT promise training and not provide it and do not allow Teacher Assistants to be moved from school to school despite having bad reviews at each school.

    I have been working at Orange County Schools full-time

    Pros

    Good people work in this district. Good benefits, but seems like each time they negotiate these, they get worse so this could change in the future.

    Cons

    Limited freedom as a teacher. Lots of outside time required for the way they want lesson plans, data, and items on the evaluation system they use.

    I worked at Orange County Schools full-time

    Pros

    Pay and decent benefits. Administration can be a nightmare but the county does work to remedy that. You do feel heard county-wise...even if not school-wise.

    Cons

    Not a base salary that will cover cost of living expenses. Possibility of being shot on job...not so appetizing.
