Between the staff it was great team work and communication and we all get along great. The kids are good each kid is their own way. But the hours are not great so meaning a small pay check.
Pros
Staff
Cons
Supervisor and hours

Presenter/tainer for a curriculum
I was a presenter and trainer for a curriculum company, Lab-aids / SEPUP. Because my resume lists these places as places I led conferences and did training and/or presenting, INdeed requires me to write about my experience here.

Arlington Extended Day
The extended day was run like a zoo! No one really cared until they saw an inspector on the premises. Then they ran around with their heads cut off trying to fix the things they knew were wrong the whole time. We would fill out accident reports and give them to them to complete and they wouldn't complete them.
Pros
Working monday through Friday
Cons
Not enough people caring just there for the paycheck

Stressful and difficult job
Management is poor at best. Not trained in people skilled managed by intimidation. The district top heavy with high level supervisors, assistants to the assistants without knowledge or educational background. No respect for teacher from administration. No respect from the public or students.
Pros
Not a desk job, teaching children to love learning
Cons
No restroom breaks, many extra meetings trainings no extra pay, no support from administration, no rewards or confirmation on excellent work

Horrible supervisors and pay
Upper echelon management from the Principal to the Superintendent are weak willed and will not support their staff, especially involving parental complaints. They operate on a quality points system and students can fail and still pass which is not beneficial to anyone. Grading and discipline are inconsistent to say the least which causes serious issues with students.
They do not pay enough for most staff to live in the area but if you have your Ph.D you are set to make six figures after a few years.
Pros
Some students are awesome to work with
Cons
Supervisors don’t support staff

Depends on the position but drive at work, set up for the day, pick up students (breakfast if needed), morning retune, school activities (various courses), take students to lunch, (work outside recesses duty 30 minutes), pick up from lunch, take my lunch, afternoon activities, then put on buss for home. End of day cleanup and discussion for that day and next, next day prep, go home.

A great place to work
I worked in Arlington Public Schools for 5 year. It was a place where I learned constantly how to improve my teaching skills. Colleagues and administration were more than coworkers, it was your family.
Pros
Supportive administration

Good learning experience
Although it is stressful to be in a room with sometimes 100 children there is never a boring day at work because it is great to engage with the children and get to know them.

Wonderful Environment
I love my job, the students, and staff. I feel supported, appreciated for my skills and trusted as a professional to manage my courses in an appropriate manner. I will only leave this job if I relocate, otherwise could be happy teaching there indefinitely.
