    Pros

    Training, teachers are willing to go the extra mile. They offer good benefits.

    Cons

    Where can I start??? Inconsistency all the time. Administrators seem to forget they were teachers too. Many teachers leave the teacher profession or get burned out after working at Alief. It should not be that way.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid off drama. Get rid of childish, diva administrators. At some point I didn't know whether my campus principal was an adult or a teenager.

    Pros

    The best pay in Houston; great vacation time, option to get extra money during summer months. Stable job if you like children and enjoy service.

    Cons

    Stress growing, never ending administrative tasks, less time to teach. Great demands in terms of meetings, planning. No growth plans...

    Advice to Management

    Respect your teachers; change emphasis on testing.

    Pros

    Challenging environment, students who need and appreciate dedicated teachers, dedicated co-workers, allows for personal creativity in lesson planning, wide range of professional development opportunities

    Cons

    Administration is chaotic, has no empathy for personal problems impacting performance, and is generally useless when problems occur, student discipline is terribly handled and issues are often practically ignored in an attempt to decrease student absences due to suspensions and so on

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified individuals for administration who actually know how to run a school, not just people who passed their exam and got a masters degree!

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to work

    Cons

    Some administrators frown on writing up students for discipline referrals. Don't get caught sitting down in the classroom or you may be written up and not be able to work at a particular school.
