Teaching is Rewarding, but does not pay the bills.
Teacher, Bane Elementary School, CFISD (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – May 23, 2018
Great place to work. The professional development may just be second to none. The management is well trained. The workplace culture is laid back at first, but becomes quick paced during testing season. The hardest part of the job is knowing when and how to budget financially. The most enjoyable part of the job is keeping in touch with former students via social media, or in the community- to see have they have grown to be great parents, season ticket holders, featured on HGTV, or become assistant symphony composers. It is so rewarding to know that so many of my students are positively impacting our nation. I love knowing that I taught them how to read and write!
Teaching anywhere is hard but the good days outweigh the bad press.
There just is not enough compensation, teachers can not afford to retire.
