    I have been working at Anne Arundel County Public Schools

    Pros

    I have subbed in multiple districts in multiple states. AACPS administrators and office staff are by far the most organized and welcoming I have encountered. Dept. supervisors and administrators do the best to make sure you have everything you need. Admin check the quality of teacher sub lesson plans. I'm not used to substituting being taken so seriously! The kids want to like you and work with you. They respect substitutes who really try and will show their appreciation. MOST classes in MOST buildings are good enough that you won't "lose" them if there is a small hiccup. If you think these administrators are bad, then you really need to travel around and see what's out there. The number of good administrators is higher in AACPS than other places I've been. Keep up the good work AACPS! I want to teach there full time based on my experiences.

    Cons

    The pay scale for substitutes should be 15 dollars higher than it is. The entry level pay scale for full time teachers is acceptable, but it is not competitive for mid-career educators. More needs to be done to ensure step raises. I guess there is a price to pay for working in nice schools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the step raises, and beef up the mid-career Master's steps. AACPS is a wonderful district that does so much right! Do more to keep your best educators!

    Elementary Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Anne Arundel County Public Schools.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an application for the elementary teacher candidate pool and was emailed 3 days later for a prescreening phone interview. Then I had a phone interview with HR, but I'm not sure how it went because I have not been contacted by anyone in AACPS after the interview. They tried to explain their hiring process to me. I think if they like your phone interview, then they call your references. After they call your references, then they start submitting your resume to principals so you can get calls about teaching jobs within the district.
