The work environment felt like a family oriented place.

I can only speak on the school I taught at: It was professional, and family oriented, and a place you would consider a home away from home.

The work environment in Baltimore City Public Schools is very challenging, stressful, and rewarding, especially when it comes to the students. It's all about the students, they're the ones that kept me hanging on. For example, 2015/16, I was a Business teacher teaching Principles of Business Management, Advanced Business Management, mentoring student interns in the MECU student branch located right in our school, prepared students for MOS certification. During 2016/17, I was a Math and Science teacher for grade 6 up until September 30th, 2016. On September 30th, I was instantly moved to being a Math teacher for grade eight, CCSS Math 8. No matter how hard I had to work this year, I did get through it and it was for the success of my students. If I left my position, who would have taught these students? I taught a large population of ESOL students as well. What would these students have done if I left. Again, I hung in there and stuck it out irregardless of how stressful it was to teach a curriculum I was not familiar with especially since I'm not a Math teacher.

The environment and culture is different in every school, however what did remain the same from every school I worked in was the stress levels as well as teachers feeling negatively toward the district, the politics of being a teacher in the district, and those who are in charge of decision making.
