This review may be a bit biased because I have never worked in any other districts, but even veteran teachers will express their distaste for clark county.
The first year I was eligible to teach there was a hiring freeze so I was left to substitute in the mean time. The second year, they finally hired me and I was able to work at the school of my choosing, – more... which was nice, but the pay was not enough to allow me to live on my own. I made 30,000 less than the national average wage for teachers. Towards the end of the school year they laid off hundreds of teachers and I was one of them. They didn't inform me until late in the summer of a new assignment which I was greatful for, but it was still heart wrenching to wait. I did get a pay increase for the year of $1000 dollars, but was later taken away from me in March, just like everyone else's pay increase.
This is how I experienced my first two years of teaching and it was just an emotional roller coaster. Teaching is challenging and this just was the icing on the cake. No real support from up top. I haven't even described the way students are effected. – less
