Many committed (and some not-so-committed) teachers working with limited resources and a stifling bureaucracy.

I have been working at Prince Georges County Public Schools (MD) full-time for more than a year

Pros

You get to work in a dynamic environment each day with students and colleagues. If you benefit from administrative support and have the drive, you can have a great impact. Work relationships are generally collegial, and there is a sense that we are all in this together.

Cons

Anything involving the central office is paralyzing slow and mismanaged. The best advice I received was that if you need to hand anything in, do so in person and make sure you get a signed receipt. Also, class sizes can be ludicrous (40+ is not uncommon in some secondary-level placements).

    Pros

    Help Kids in Need, Help America's Future. Teaching is a very rewarding job and you can really make a difference teaching in PG County Schools

    Cons

    Long long hours and constant scrutiny by a variety of observers, parents, etc. Dealing with some of the adults is the worst part

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to get rid of bad teachers and push good teachers up. Start giving raises again--too many years of the same salary freeze.
