    Great place to be a teacher

    Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) Kingwood, TX

    ProsI 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.

    ConsSometimes 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

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

    Librarian (Current Employee) Humble, TX

    ProsOur 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.

    ConsLack 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 Senior ManagementKeep the course!

    Growing Pains

    Teacher, Administrator (Former Employee)

    ProsOverall, 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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementAdvise 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.

    ConsThe benefits are not the best. In fact very expensive.
