CAN BE GREAT .. in the right school.

I would highly suggest that if you want to work for this system, you had better get a feel for all of the schools at your level by asking to observe classes during the year. This will let you see for yourself what you're comfortable with.
DCPS know's how to compensate their people, and will quickly advance your salary to 6 figures if you're "killing it" at the game. However, they are quick to expel you if you have a bad season, hence making sure the school and level you choose are important.
Once you find a good fit, then, in all honesty, it's pretty smooth sailing. You will work! You had better be ready to adapt QUICKLY! And, you had better be ready to be both "real" and on your A-game 24/7.
Compensation; Good number of good schools
Always Changing; Some schools are rough.
