Are a lot of people applying to work in this school system? Is there anyone currently teaching here?

I am graduating in May and I am applying to the PG Teaching Fellows for the 2009-10 school yr and I know it is predominately urban area, I grew up in the DC metro area, so I know the demographic. I just wanted to hear from those who are already working in this school system.

  • teaching/ living in PG My personal advice? PG County school system will burn you out of teaching within 1 year. Teacher burnout is a fear no matter where you teach. However, if you plan on making teaching your career, you should plan on starting your career elsewhere! ...See More
