    Pros

    Many opportunities for staff development. A lot of support. Teachers have opportunities to change schools. Schools have very diverse populations.

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

    Pros

    Prince George's County was always a progressive county looking for new ways to engage students.

    Cons

    Like any other public teaching job, as teachers we are held accountable for our actions, but others, such as the students are not. The parents have the upper hand in the situations.

    Advice to Management

    Let the experts on the student make decisions that influence the classroom.

    Pros

    Great curriculum resources and professional development. Reasonable class sizes.Good teacher collaboration and collegiality.

    Cons

    Too many school system mandates (Student Learning Objectives, Framework for Teaching evaluations, required testing) take up too much time away from teaching and learning.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the time teachers have to spend on things other than planning and teaching!
