    I have been working at Alief Independent School District part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Alief ISD has a good pay scale for full time-contract and associate teachers.
    The District has many study programs and elective curriculum courses that students can use to gain skills and start their own businesses or acquire employment.

    Cons

    Alief ISD promotes a school and office culture, which is biased toward conformity. If applicants are highly qualified, yet they do not engage in social circles, bars, or email conversations about personal life, these applicants are not hired. If one was hired, the principals and assistant principals harass them or force them to resign. Associate teachers are treated with disdain and given unfair work loads.
    The superintendent spreads the culture of "fear of school attacks", (in protocol of security procedures) yet he does not teach staff a courteous protocol in interacting with rotating associate teachers, visitors, and students that shows respect and appreciation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to upper management:
    1. Be consistent in calling associate teachers associate teachers, not "sub" or "substitute".
    2. Educate staff on ways to greet associate teachers and think of them as an important entity.
    3. Require and monitor teachers to prepare meaningful, related emergency plans in advance.
    4. Do not pressure associate teachers to give up their legal rights by having administrative staff threaten that associate teachers will not get hired if they refuse to sign the summer waiver.
    5. Upgrade associate teachers pay day schedule so they do not have to wait five (5) weeks at the beginning of each year before receiving any paychecks.
    6. Have high expectations of administrators and students to appreciate and cooperate with associate teachers fairly. This is "working for free"
    7. Encourage staff and students to respect and appreciate qualified teachers of all ages; do not be prejudiced against over age 60 teachers who are doing a great job.
    8. Be willing to pay more for more experienced teachers.
    9. Stop short-changing students by saving money in using associate teachers when experienced, fully certified, highly qualified teachers are available and have applied.
