    Pros

    Often times but a bad place to work but still has the common problems with salaries as any other job.

    Cons

    People here are oblivious to the problems most will face when working at Prin. The motto is give until you can't without any extra compensation.

    Amazing coworkers

    Pros

    The people you get to work with are incredible - inspiring, collaborative, loving, happy, and highly talented. The benefits package was extremely generous including tuition for my kids and tuition reimbursement for my grad school. World class in-house professional development and generous funding to go to outside PD. The school covers teacher supplies and has support for tech, curriculum development, and more. Teachers love the students.

    Cons

    Teachers are expected to do a lot besides teaching like curriculum development, weeks of PD before school starts, advisory and chaperoning student trips, but at least it is well supported with training and funding and can be very personally rewarding.
