      Not Bad

      Pros

      Working with kids is the best! Great teachers and staff at every school I’ve worked at.

      Cons

      Work life balance is very difficult in the CBE. They keep piling things on teachers and don’t reduce their current work load. Most teachers in the CBE that I know are feeling burnt out and unappreciated. It is too bad because the profession is losing good teachers who quit because they cannot continue as things are. Things have become increasingly difficult in the last few years because of covid and the higher ups don’t seem to understand the challenges we are facing.
