As future educators, we are faced with the task of choosing where we want to apply for teaching jobs. There are a variety of schools where we can work, each one having different positives and negatives. Some find suburban public schools particularly appealing, while others envision themselves at a private urban school. It is important to analyze your preferences when choosing a school; for example, some districts offer teachers little say in curriculum development while others allow teachers a significant amount of lesson planning freedom. What school system do you think will work best for you?
Where do you see yourself teaching:
a Public School, Private School, or Charter School?
Do you prefer the New York City Public school system or do you wish to teach in a suburban neighborhood?
