    At or in preposition confusion

    Sentence: "working as a teacher at/in a school"

    My question/doubt: What would be the right preposition in the above mentioned sentence: at or in. I think "at" but have seen so many people using "in" that's why I'm confused. So need your help/confirmation.

    Thanks

    Re: At or in preposition confusion

    I (unofficially) declare at/in questions to have taken over from 'simple past/pres perfect' questions as the most FAQ.

    Anyhow, more clues here:

    It would great if everyone made their topics as searchable as the ones on this page.
