Does anyone work in a Private and/or Christian school? If so, how is it different? Pros/Cons? I'm considering applying for our local Christian school.

I have worked in all three. Public had the best pay and most freedom. Parochial and private Christian have lower pay, but parochial had better benefits. The Christian school was very fundamentalist, and monitored most closely. Overall, I believe the public schools have more resources and opportunities for both students and teachers. Yhat said, I have taught in a parochial school for the past 9 years.

I talked to a friend about working at a private Christian school compared to a public school. She said she deals with helicopter moms while in the public schools in our area, you really don't have much parental involvement. Also, in our public schools it is not uncommon to have no contact with parents, especially the kids who need it the most. Helicopter moms can add a different kind of stress to your job, or can be a great asset.
