I worked at Prince Georges County Public Schools (MD) part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Working with the people that I worked with and the children I helped develop their great futures. I love working with our little guys and gals they are the one who if I'm not feeling well or having a good day they brighten it up and I'm laughing because they said or did something nice or sweet or so funny that I can't help but to laugh smile or feel better. The fact that I want to come back to the Bus Attendants job from 2007.

Cons

I would love to drive the school bus but my eye sight and dyslexia won't allow me to do that job. I never liked the application process it's too long and too much paperwork needed to be hired for any job applying for I hope that changes soon.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The substitute probation till you can move up to Full-time bus attendant. I would say 6 months is long enough to make that move. There should never be favorites with management and lower staff from the main office to the bus lots and there were when I was there. Please correct that and all will be a great place to work.

    Pros

    Good place to start as a new teacher who needs to get experience under their belt.

    Cons

    - the county literally builds the curriculum as the school year is in session. You will find out a week before a unit begins what you will be teaching
    -too many new initiatives without support or follow through from the county

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -HR is slow and not helpful
    -support the teachers more
