    I worked at Boston Public Schools full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is better than anywhere else in the state.

    Cons

    If you don't live in the city, public transportation is not practical, parking is not available, then you will find yourself driving in circles trying to find parking during the winter months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try one thing at a time, my year working there, 3 different curriculum were tried. Teaching is about ability to takes tests, we all know that, but at least try a program to its end before telling teachers midway to change once again.

    I have been working at Boston Public Schools

    Pros

    I love working here because I get valuable teaching experience while continuing to learn more about effective practices and interventions for struggling students.

    Cons

    Sometimes I am asked to complete the "unwanted" tasks of the teachers such as making copies and completing bulletin boards. Although a huge part of teaching, I would prefer to do this before or after the school day, and not during.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love how we are supported by the special ed. coordinator.
