I worked at Prince Georges County Public Schools (MD) full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I loved working with the student! I liked traveling to different schools, and meeting new people!

Cons

Apparently working hard and getting excellent reviews doesn't matter! I was laid-off after 19 years!

Advice to Management

If you didn't want to fight for our positions, at least give us the respect we deserved by meeting with us in person to tell us we were being laid-off, instead of just a phone call! That was cold!!
