    I worked at Humble ISD

    Pros

    If you are a teacher that wants to make a difference, the Kids see that and they do appreciate you.

    Cons

    It's about who you know to move up in this district. Too many unprofessional things happen in this district and those teachers are never disciplined. If they are disciplined, those teachers are moved around from school to school or if they know someone higher up, the issue just goes away. Those are the teachers you have to pick up slack for as well as the teachers that are friends with administrators. Target on your back if you stand up for what you think is right. Lack of professional development opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appraisals of administrators a must. Administrators should develop positive relationships with staff if they want results. They focus too much on moving up and themselves period. You are losing good quality teachers who actually care about doing a good job.

    I worked at Humble ISD full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I like the people that I see daily. Others, I have never met.

    Cons

    Lack of sharing ideas, plans 'Good' information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Call meetings when there is something new and important...not simply reading from handout that everyone has. Say or do something positive occasionally.

    I worked at Humble ISD part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Humble ISD as a substitute teacher, it allowed me to learn how I worked with a group of students, what my favorite ages were to work. Great way to gain experience before you dive in for a teacher certificate. Every school I taught had amazing professionals who were passionate and dedicated to the students.

    Cons

    Sometimes the computer system was cumbersome to deal with. I would look for positions and it would not load properly so when I went to accept an assignment I could not.

    Humble ISD: Not Humble About Our Students Or Employees:)

    I have been working at Humble ISD

    Pros

    Our superintendent is knowledgeable about best practices in schools and management. He is actively involved in state legislative issues that impact our district. He is genuinely concerned about student and employee success and satisfaction. Humble ISD is a family atmosphere, with caring people in every department. Our school board is also well-informed of best practices, legislative issues, and employee satisfaction. Clear goals are set, reviewed, and built upon. Our students come from caring homes and excel in the workplace or college. Also, our community supports us and frequently digs deep into their pockets to fund bond elections, not because of financial mismanagement or waste at the district level, but because the state's funding for public schools is inequitable and stifling.

    Cons

    Lack of revenue received from the state. Texans approved lotteries several years ago, under the guise of profits going to public education. Instead, it has been put into the "general fund" and I have not seen any of it funneled into education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the course!

    I worked at Humble ISD full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Overall, Humble ISD is a very good school district. There are many quality educators and caring parents who want what is best for the children in our communities.

    Cons

    The population has increased and demographics have changed at astounding rates over the past twenty years. Administrators at all levels rarely dedicate adequate time to the important issues they must address because they are overloaded with meetings that accomplish nothing and emails that are a waste of time. Teachers have so much paperwork to do that they don't have the time to prepare effective engaging lessons or to do the one-on-one/small-group tutoring after hours that would truly bring struggling students up to speed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advise adults to address each other directly in a respectful manner in an attempt to resolve their issues rather than expecting you to intervene unless it is absolutely necessary in YOUR opinion. Parents and teachers need to learn to work together with the student's best interest in mind. Faculty members need to learn to work together as professionals, not tattling on one another like juveniles. Above all, live by a code of integrity, and leave workplace politics behind regardless of the cost.
