Pros: i loved the teaching schedule and it allowed me to spend quality time with my children, great staff and students
Cons: not a lot of parental involvement for many of my students, administartive changes, not much room for advancement
I enjoyed working in a small town, rural school. The students were great! Despite our size, we stayed pretty current with education trends and there were several opportunities for professional development. the staff was very friendly and we all generally worked very well together. There wasn't much room for advancement within because we had several teachers that had been there for many years and didn't plan to retire any time soon. Towards the end there were a lot of changes in administration, which resulted in a high turnover rate and our department losing several aides, though our student numbers were rapidly increasing.
