    Former Employee - Middle School Teacher in Katy, TX

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

    Pros

    Teaching in this district was wonderful and staff members are treated fairly and with respect. Worked in a middle school and had wonderful experience with principal, asst. principals, team, department, grade level, etc. Little things come up here-and-there and of course there are always some disgruntled employees who are unhappy with the current system, but overall I enjoyed my experience. Left because we moved out of state.

    Cons

    It can get overwhelming with the tremendous amount of growth in the area. Middle school of grade levels 6/7/8 had roughly 2,000 students, which made the hallways and the classrooms cramped at times. But this is the nature of the K12-Education-beast though, in one of the fastest growing cities (and in one of the fastest growing states) in America.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing - thank you for valuing your staff members enough to train them during the school year... please don't cut that out amid the budget cuts!

    Certified Substitute Interview

    Application Details

    interviewed at Katy ISD in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a scheduled time, and when I arrived, you picked up the packet corresponding to your certification level. Then, they usher you to tables where you take a "Substitute Qualification Test." Not what I expected at all - it's the a portion of a high school English exam. After you take the test, the usher you to an interview room where they interview you of course. I'm guessing the interview questions are tailored to your education/experience level. Mine was brief and the questions were straight forward - but easy to answer since I've been a teacher for 7 years. After that, they let you know if you will be invited to training within a week. I got the email invitation one day later.
