Fun and Challenging
Teacher (Current Employee), Science TeacherFebruary 9, 2014
There is no typical day teaching. Students bring a different outlook on life daily which means you, as a teacher, must constantly be on your toes to "roll with the punches". I have a fantastic group of co-workers who work together to make the day go as smoothly as possible. Just as the rolling with the punching makes the days consistently different – more... that, at times, also makes the job difficult. But that challenging part is what makes teaching so fun. By far the most enjoyable part is getting the notes, comments, or affirmation from former and current students that you had a positive effect on their life. – less

The hardest part of my job was Transporting high energy Kids to their homes in the afternoon from being cooped up in school all day long.

Days are very busy but you have to draw the line on when you are done for the day.

Needs an overhaul
High school Teacher (Former Employee), Tarpon Springs, FLMarch 22, 2013
The system is broken. Teachers are underpaid and overworked. There is little to no recognition of good work on the county level and every year there are more requirements placed on the teachers. Most of the people with the ability or brainpower have been leaving over the last few years and I imagine this trend will continue if they don't get their acts – more... together. – less
