    Former Employee - Teacher, Elementary School in Houston, TX

    I worked at Houston ISD full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    administrative support
    competitive salary for inner city schools
    opportunities to collaborate on a daily basis with colleagues
    opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    Because HISD serves a large, inner city area there are many children with socio-economic disadvantages who struggle academically. As a teacher, you are presented with students who are well below the target level as well a those who are on target and well above target level. It can be a challenge to meet the needs of all students; however, I also feel this is one of the most rewarding reasons for working in HISD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to support and advocate for your teachers. I think HISD is a well run school district with qualified and dedicated people who are working together to serve the children of Houston.
