Both growing up in the district and getting the opportunity to work with them as well was always a wonderful experience. I was always greeted by amazing coworkers upon entry and always had people to talk to during the long days. My kids were always so amazing and over the summers I would miss them dearly.
Of course being a teacher you should expect to put in the extra hours that are not on your typical schedule. Coming in early and leaving home late while creating lesson plans over the weekend just seems like normal after a point in time.
I would highly recommend giving Peoria Unified School District a look at if you're considering teaching.
