      I have been working at Rochester City School District full-time

      Pros

      Great coworkers, inspiring kids. Learned a lot and really pushed myself.

      Cons

      Exhausting, not great work/life balance. The US Educational system (not specific to Rochester) is badly broken. Students aren't sufficiently supported--socially/emotionally/academically. Too many needs that cannot be met unless big changes are made.
