Great place to work depending on school
Licensed Professional School Counselor (Current Employee), Nashville, TNJune 8, 2014
Pros: can be very rewarding work
Cons: inconsistencies
Working in education can be very rewarding. It is always a positive when seeing students matriculate throughout their career and graduate. There are several different opportunities for student success. Teachers are very concerned about their students success and will go above and beyond to help them succeed. There are many great teachers in the system – more... who deserves more pay for what they do. No amount of money can repay the hard work and dedication spent preparing – less

Exciting and Different Work Atmosphere
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), Nashville, TNMarch 4, 2014
Pros: different everyday, option to choose which days to work
Cons: no benefits
I am a sub for K-12 and everyday is different. Different school, class, etc.. Some days are easier than others but I like the fact that I can accept a job or decline it. There are certain school I absolutely love working at and some that I will not sub at again. There is also a bonus pay if you work everyday in a pay period which is nice since compensation – more... isn't great. – less

They pay and bonuses were nice but no benefits as a sub. The classroom enviroments have changed . I mainly worked at Title One schools which consisted of student on free or reduced lunch. The best part of the job was changing the lives of many.

I only work PT as called as assignments come open, for schools for the current school year.
Office Support Staff (Current Employee), Yes, MNPS PT employeeFebruary 22, 2013
Pros: if you have another pt job to go with this pt work, you can do both depending upon the need.
Cons: would like to be in a school office as full time worker but these jobs are few and far between.
Very good to work for full time I am sure. I am a PT on call type employee and do not get even enough hours with this position and don't see full time happening soon enough with the economy as it is being slow to rise.

Stressful, unrealistic demands, high standards for Teacher
Engineering Instructor (Former Employee), Nashville TNNovember 10, 2012
Pros: decent salary compared to others and medical benefits
Cons: stress, cannot discipline/kick out unruly students asap, mostly unmotivated students
Took this job at another Mnps high school with mostly minorities. Lasted less than 3 months. Coming from Industry hard to shift to environment where kids can run wild with little consequences. Program is well-funded but they just throw kids in to fill seats rather than filter/select students that truly want to go into STEM fields. Meanwhile Instructors – more... have all these metrics and indicators to meet as "professionals" while dumbing down the Program to pass enough students to keep the funding going. – less
