I worked at Frederick County Public Schools full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

My 10 years' experience with FCPS was positive. I met many life-long friends and colleagues there. I would recommend anyone coming out of college to consider FCPS as an employer.

Cons

None that I can think of at this time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have been away from FCPS to offer any advice. My last year with FCPS was 1998.

    I have been working at Frederick County Public Schools

    Pros

    As a parent, it's nice to be off when your kids are out of school which is for he most part the case other than teacher work days.

    Cons

    Teachers don't make the priority list at all and although 5 years ago it was a great place to be, I'm brushing up my résumé to get out of this downward spiral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most expletives wouldn't be so upset about not getting raises if they didn't continually play this yes/no game and took the time to say "thank you" every now and then. It would also be awesome if they would ask what we need before blowing tons of money things that we'll never use in our classrooms....
