I worked at Boston Public Schools full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Pay is better than anywhere else in the state.

Cons

If you don't live in the city, public transportation is not practical, parking is not available, then you will find yourself driving in circles trying to find parking during the winter months.

Advice to Management

Try one thing at a time, my year working there, 3 different curriculum were tried. Teaching is about ability to takes tests, we all know that, but at least try a program to its end before telling teachers midway to change once again.

    Pros

    I love working here because I get valuable teaching experience while continuing to learn more about effective practices and interventions for struggling students.

    Cons

    Sometimes I am asked to complete the "unwanted" tasks of the teachers such as making copies and completing bulletin boards. Although a huge part of teaching, I would prefer to do this before or after the school day, and not during.

    Advice to Management

    I love how we are supported by the special ed. coordinator.

    Pros

    The best reason is paid vacation. No other job will give you as much paid time off and vacation time like jobs at a school.

    Cons

    There is really no growth in this industry or expanding your career. Some faculty members are beyond what you would call rude.
