I have been working at Prince Georges County Public Schools (MD) full-time (More than 8 years)
- PGCPS invests a lot of money into Educational Technology. Teachers have county issued laptops and LCD projectors. Students and teachers have Google accounts. PGCPS is as prepared as they can be for online PARCC testing! - Competitive pay (I have been teaching there for 9 years, and make over $57,000). Could be better, but not bad considering where the economy sits presently. - PGCPS relies on their good teachers to share what they know with colleagues. It helps a lot to attend a presentation led by someone who has been in the classroom recently as opposed to someone 10+ years removed from the classroom.
- Aside from technology, other resources such as books are not readily available for students. Students often have to share resources. - There seems to be a disconnect with what is expected with regards to Math. Tests put out by the math department do not always align with what we teach. - The evaluation process for teachers is much improved, but at times seems a little strict. It is nice to have high expectations, but setting the bar too high demoralizes the employees.
Advice to Management
- Take a look at softening up teacher evaluations. I understand that higher-ups want to weed out unqualified teachers, but don't take it too far to the extreme. - Proofread assessments before sending them to schools! Typos and questions not aligned with what we teach happen too often...
