    I worked at Pasadena Independent School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The district provides ample opportunities for continuing education. Pay schedules are competitive. Consistent annual salary increases.

    Cons

    Not really a con: as with any district, your employment experience is directly related to your own professionalism and your rapport with administration.
    Benefits are costly.
