A foot in the door
School Aide (Former Employee), East Brunswick, NJJune 3, 2014
Pros: full benefits package, great working environment
Cons: low pay, it's impossible to support yourself on the wages earned, no holiday pay
If you are a changing careers, being a school aide lets you see many different positions within a school and gives you an opportunity to see how well each department works. My experience was a positive and helped me make a decision to pursue my M. Ed.

Harsh, unrealistic expectations and no guidance; expected and wanted to fail
teacher (Former Employee), schoolDecember 28, 2012
Pros: a salary
Cons: horrible treatment, unprofessional work environment, high standards not geared towards children but towards administration's benefit.
I was warned ahead of time when I was hired that it would be hard to be rehired (I was told this by several SUPERVISORS). I had no idea what I got myself into. Horribly rude, unprofessional coworkers....who showed movies and screamed at fellow teachers they didn't like. I have never felt so disrespected and demoralized in my entire life. After a year – more... of perfect reviews, I was still not rehired, just because. Worst workplace environment I have ever encountered. It felt like a bad dream. – less

School district I thought would be better.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee), East Brunswick, NJApril 12, 2012
Pros: frequent breaks, summers off
Cons: difficult students, too much accountability
My role as a substitute teacher was typical, to follow the plans left by the absent teacher to ensure the continuity of education for the students. This was not easy as students always found new ways to push my buttons and co-workers tended to criticize rather than advise me. I learned that a career in the education field is not a good match for me. – more... The most enjoyable part of the job was when I was asked to do office duty when not needed in a classroom; these were typically concrete and repetitive tasks, my performance on which I was more respected than my performance in the classroom. – less
