    I worked at Toledo Public Schools full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you love kids then that's for you

    Cons

    Politics, there are some administration people are not fun to work for. Especially some PRINCIPLES. Some are very nice, but some are are so full of them self. They make it very hard to work for you to feel confident about yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Don't through you under the bus. Especially when you have people that worked for you for 16 yrs. Just to have one person like a principal ruin it for you. Stop having so much bullying of your loyal special education workers to have them be sick all the time. Wish I could do something about it.

    Pros

    mentoring and support was helpful to ensure that you are comfortable in your working environment which was not something that I had with other employers.

    Advice to Management

    Until they decide to change HR Administration policies and management, superintendent (currently Dr. Durant who just received a $20,000 pay raise) and restructure the entire administration; nothing will change the F rating that Toledo Public Schools. The system is broken.
