    I worked at Hartford Public Schools full-time

    Pros

    Teaching and working with students in Hartford Public Schools is a tough and very challenging job. It can be very rewarding when you see the success and growth in the students. HPS are undergoing serious reforms, so there are a lot of opportunities to learn new teaching ideas and refine current practices.

    Cons

    Reform and change is a good thing, but sometimes can become too much when not done thoughtfully and carefully. It is incredibly difficult, as a teacher, to perfect and refine teaching practice when the expectations and demands of teachers seem to be changing each year. At many times, the expectations of curriculum and assessment scores were not realistic to the demands of the classroom.
