Pros: time off, benefits, working with children
Cons: many demands placed on you, low pay, disrespectful behavior from children
It's an opportunity to work with and have a positive impact on children.
There are a lot of wonderful people in education who have big hearts.
I have learned to be flexible, be part of a team, be highly organized, multi-task, and wear many different hats.
The hardest part of the job is that there is no increase in pay, no matter how hard you work.
