It is not what you know it is WHO you know
Teacher/Administrative Support (Former Employee) –  Palm Beach County, FLFebruary 26, 2016
As a veteran teacher I always did my job above and beyond the call of duty without any help from the district. Use my own money (which was very little due to step increases being taken away and could hardly live on the salary) to provide for my students to help them succeed. District began micromanaging and teaching towards "a test" stressing the students and teachers out rather than allowing teachers to have their creative approach to educate. Going up in this district means you need to know someone of higher rank as they don't hire the best person for the position the hire people that "they know" so no opportunity for advancement. Will not pay you for a higher degree in most areas (if they do it is hardly anything) and you already spend the little income you make on your class. Too political and not focused on making the school district a better educational system.
Pros
Job security after 3 years, insurance, summers off, winter and spring breaks
Cons
awful salary, not caring for the teachers, no opportunity for growth, feeling like you are under a microscope, no creative freedom to help educate students, teaching to "a test"

Overall
Teacher (Former Employee) –  Delray BeachNovember 14, 2014
The management of the schools and district has become extremely poor to the detriment of our students. Moral is low among the faculty. The bureaucracy is too large. The students are wonderful and the work of teaching is wonderful, but the pressure has become unbearable and unproductive. Job advancement is also an issue. Only a fraction of my ability and intellectual power is being used.
Pros
security

A great place to work.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) –  West Palm Beach, FLSeptember 18, 2012
A typical day at work consisted of following the primary teacher lesson plan and keeping classroom management in tact. The hardest part of the job is when you were assign for one teacher and they change your assignment. The enjoyable part of the job was when the teacher would leave a detailed lesson plan.
Pros
the primary teacher will leave a good lesson plan to follow.
