    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.

    I worked at Spring Independent School District

    Pros

    There are a lot of good professional development opportunities that Sprind ISD offers. All of the staff that I worked with were very friendly and supportive.

    Cons

    People are two faced. They are nice to your face, but turn around and talk about you behind your back. The administration tells you one thing, but doesn't follow through. They are not loyal to their current employees.
