GCS is a good place to work for the most part but could be more teacher friendly
Teacher (Current Employee), Greensboro, NCDecember 2, 2014
Once great benefits and decent pay has consistently eroded into a situation where teachers are now working many hours for very minimal compensation. Guilford County Schools isn't the reason for this, it is more of the state's doing but it all flows downhill. There are great principals and assistant principals at the various schools but each school has – more... a different culture. You just have to find the right fit and culture for you. Central Office could be a lot more teacher friendly and work more closely with the teachers. – less

Substitute Teaching
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCNovember 18, 2014
Pros: ability to choose available jobs yourself
Cons: travel expenses are mandatory and out-of-pocket; low-paying and thankless job
A day in the life of a substitute teacher is one of not knowing what to expect. Since a substitute accepts jobs as they are made available, one never quite knows what he or she will be walking into. The students may be wonderful and need barely any supervision, or they may need constant supervision and correction simply to get what little work done – more... that was left for them. The hardest part of the job is being treated by the students like you are a nobody or just a cheap stand-in for their actual teacher, despite being fully qualified to teach them. – less
