      Pros

      Great insurance and retirement benefits. Three month summer break to decompress and have time for family. Helping sculpt and nurture the future of our society.

      Cons

      Very political, horrible union. In Elementary, all curriculum is canned and scripted, right down to what you say during each lesson. You have to write out lesson plans even though they come with the curriculum. So, if you teach K-2 Ready, Math and Science, that's "at least" 35 individual lessons you have to plan and write out every week ( have posted to your door by Monday morning)! This is taking into consideration Reading and Math lessons have to be differentiated to address high, medium and below grade level skill-sets. It's mentally exhausting just address the administrative CYA demands and district testing; it leaves less time for the most important piece ... creating a beautiful connection and inspiring lil ones to love learning.

      Pros

      Adequate amount of training, classroom preparedness, Community type of feel in the classroom and schools you work at.

      Cons

      Overworked, underpaid. Unfortunately it will always be this way and less you take an administration type of job like vice principal or principal a guidance counselor some type of profession of that nature to make over $60,000 a year.
