    I worked at South Portland School Dept

    Pros

    Some genuinely terrific, bright and devoted teachers.

    Cons

    Top two officials in the district are the very picture of mediocrity, which is celebrated by the city, and secretly mean as dirt, which probably wouldn't be celebrated if people knew about it. In my entire career, I've never had a supervisor swear at me, but it happened here -- for an incident that did not in fact take place. People are sneaky, trite and unhappy. Look elsewhere.
