    A challenging but fun experience

    Teacher's Aide (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsSpring ISD has a phenomenal staff where friendships are made between students and staff.

    ConsThe pay isn't that good for paraprofessionals. You can't really survive on it if you have a family, unless you have a second job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Politically run, no control over disciplinary issues.

    Teacher @ Westfield (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsSalary & benefits are competitive, majority of the staff is very committed to providing a high quality education.

    ConsPolitics, rather than work experience and results, determine who gets promoted! Schedule changes can happen at any time across the board to protect those favored teachers and make their lives easier... how is this fair to the child let alone the teacher?

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean house starting with the Superintendent and look closely at the principals.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Tired

    Classroom Teacher (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThe majority of your coworkers are hardworking, depending on the school-a team environment, some of the specialist really do try to help the students instead of sitting in their office.

    ConsIt depends on who you know in order to move out of the classroom, discipline is a joke at most of the schools.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrain your management before placing them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Spring ISD

    Teacher (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsI worked with some of these most amazing and creative people.

    ConsI felt teachers were not compensated for the HOURS they put in after school. Many of the wonderful people I worked with left to go to other districts. I also felt that standards in expectations from students and families had fallen.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDemand that students do the work and pass to stay in advance courses. Expect parents to share in the responsibility of educating their children. Provide each school with the support they need (not all schools have the same needs) : counselors, nurses, asst. principals.

    Spring ISD is not the worst school district, but certainly not the best, either.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFor me, one of the best reasons to work for Spring ISD is the proximity to my home. There are adequate resources available for students.

    ConsAdministration employees need to be more organized and efficient in handling employee matters. Decisions should be made according to quality of work not on who is liked or unliked.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdministration-be more organized and professional. Principals should stop having a clique-mentality.
