This is the place to be if you want part time work/pay, but not for a career or any type of advancement.
Pros: summer off, holidays off. knowing in advance what your schedule is.
Cons: no raises, only cuts. overloads of children.
With school systems going downhill it's very hard to stay afloat. Hours are getting cut drastically and schools are "doubling" up responsibilities - especially in the special needs areas. There are no advancements that can be made here if you are an existing hourly employee - only cuts.
