    Pros

    The pay is competitive and I think the level of technology tools available to the teachers is adequate, at least compared with other public school systems in which I have worked. The professional development opportunities are good.

    Cons

    The challenges vary from campus to campus honestly. A principal who supports his staff and sets clear expectations for everyone will yield fewer problems outside of student behavior and parent interactions. There is a considerable amount of politics unfortunately, as is customary in public schools. The medical benefits are costly, especially compared to when I began my teaching career. The increase is way more than inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Although the state legislation is ultimately the last word for passing laws about this, decrease benefits expenses for teachers.

    Pros

    Spring ISD has a phenomenal staff where friendships are made between students and staff.

    Cons

    The pay isn't that good for paraprofessionals. You can't really survive on it if you have a family, unless you have a second job.
