    Pros

    I've subbed for both Round Rock ISD and Leander ISD for many months, and I can easily say that the worst day subbing at Leander ISD is better than some of the best days at Round Rock ISD. For the most part, the students are well disciplined and show some interest in doing their work. The teacher's lounges have Keurigs and are usually well stocked, and the administration and faculty are much more helpful and polite than what I have encountered at Round Rock schools. Though it is a bit of a longer drive for me, I much prefer teacher at an LISD campus, every time.

    Cons

    Haven't encountered many cons. Substitute teaching pay is always low, so that's normal. Students overall have been generally respectful and will listen, ask questions, and do their work in a responsible manner for the most part. For me, the only con is the long drive to get to many of the Leander ISD campuses. Other than extra time on the road, I have enjoyed virtually every class I have had the pleasure of teaching.

    Advice to Management

    Management for these schools seems very competent. Goals seem well laid out, and students seem to respond to expectations fairly well. I am not a full-fledged teacher so my experience is most likely different than a a full-time employee, but I enjoy my time spent at LISD schools and love to spend extra time with the students who have a passion for the relevant subject matter.

    some of the HR supervisors and the principals are just plain rude and so not care about kids

    Pros

    Love working with the people, parents and students. Teachers are great and a great team atmosphere.

    Cons

    Work a lot of overtime

    Advice to Management

    Micro management in the upper level of administration. You have good growth as long as you like politics and can play the game.

    I think it would help a lot if they would send out the substitute available jobs earlier in the morning.

    Pros

    Awesome students and personnel. My students had the capability to earn college credit for each of my classes if they 'earned' 85% or higher on their overall average plus showed me 1 - on - 1 that they could set up their circuits and use the test equipment to verify they truly learned the subject.

    Cons

    I really do not have many cons. I would love to still be with them. It was awesome working within their personnel.

    Advice to Management

    No issues. Just keep things going well. The students need you.
