I adore my job. My students are sweet, polite (especially considering that it's a city public school), and ready to learn. Because CAPA is an art magnet school, the culture is a bit more lax than that of other schools: the administration acknowledges that many of our talents lie in practical artistic applications and adjust accordingly. I'm only a part time teacher, so I can't speak to any benefits, but people seem satisfied. The union is well represented in the school anyways, just in case. They've been working on updating teacher contracts for the past two years, though, so I fear some benefits and other policies may have been halted. I'm quite new to the place, so I can't attest to that very well.
