Dallas ISD substitute

Former Employee - Substitute Teacher  in  Dallas, TX
Former Employee - Substitute Teacher in Dallas, TX

I worked at Dallas Independent School District part-time for less than a year

Pros

The school system was very helpful in guiding me to potential positions and was overall a great experience. Compensations is mediocre but for someone struggling in this job market, it was nice to have a paycheck. Plus the kids!

Cons

Classes were not given specific directions to go over with kids, while the classes themselves were poorly maintained. This is probably a product of poor educational finance issues more than the school.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to be more proactive in making sure teachers let substitutes go over what they need to.
