What don't you like about working at Boston Public Schools?

"Not always having the teacher's instructional curriculum materials (Teacher's Edition of texbooks and supplemental materials) and the adequate number books and supplemental resources available for students. Limited numbers of computers in the classroom for students to access online resources and materials that support instruction and learning. Never having a Mentor Teacher assigned as a new teacher during my first year or any other subsequent years of teaching in the Boston Public Schools. Having students assigned in my classroom that did not adhere to the regulations, policies and procedures for transferring students with a different special education prototype(s). Being hired as a Resource Teacher and being asked to change my positions without any prior notice, discussion or justification. Having a classroom that was formally a storage area that was not cleaned out prior to the start of the school year in one of the most isolated area of the school building away from all of the other classes of the same grade. Being one of the last classes to have lockers assigned to students. Working with a full classroom of students without a paraprofessional assigned until three weeks after the school year began."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Ensure new teachers are assigned, introduced and have a weekly contact with a Mentor Teacher in their assigned school before the first day of school. Articulate any proposed changes in teaching assignments prior to entering into a contract rather than on the first day of school.Ensure that the expectations for subject areas to be taught are clearly articulated prior to the commencement of the school year. Ensure that new teachers are informed and attend required professional development for any new subject area they are responsible for teaching if offered in the summer prior to the commencement of the school year. Provide a professional development schedule that will allow special education teachers to attend ongoing meetings with their subject area teaching colleagues to ensure continuity in instruction, provide support, and share resources and materials."
