    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Fitchburg Public Schools full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Teaching can be a very fulfilling career and the students keep everyday interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    Superintendent and principal are only concerned with standardized test scores. If your subject is not a focal point of standardized testing, expect minimal support and the expectation that you will become a math or reading/writing teacher in the weeks leading up to big tests.

    Advice to Management

    Dare to be honest with staff, especially regarding real goals and budgetary constraints. If you know you can't afford to pay someone based on union contract obligations, don't hire them.
