Current Employee - Teacher in Dallas, TX

I have been working at Dallas Independent School District full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

You will work with some awesome kids who are talented and willing to learn. You will have a group of amazing teachers helping you grow and better you as a teacher.

Cons

Administration sucks! I've only heard of a handful of strong principals. Most people who are in those positions got there because they know someone who got them in the door. Principals are a dime a dozen in this district.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let teachers do what they know how to do. If you are so concerned about your scores, listen to the teachers. What are there needs to do what is necessary and then do it.

    no raise in 3-4 years, urban school district, struggles with student achievement, first year teachers in schools that are rated unacceptable
    .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase outreach to parent community in secondary grades, kids need more support, provide teachers with a raise, provide teachers with excellent professional development by trained professionals, rather than inhouse training, half of the time.
