    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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.

    I worked at Spring Independent School District

    Pros

    There are a lot of good professional development opportunities that Sprind ISD offers. All of the staff that I worked with were very friendly and supportive.

    Cons

    People are two faced. They are nice to your face, but turn around and talk about you behind your back. The administration tells you one thing, but doesn't follow through. They are not loyal to their current employees.

    I have been working at Spring Independent School District

    Pros

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

    Cons

    I 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 ManagementAdvice

    Demand 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.

    I have been working at Spring Independent School District

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Administration 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 ManagementAdvice

    Administration-be more organized and professional. Principals should stop having a clique-mentality.
