    Pros

    Wonderful people to be around. Administration respects their employees and tries to give them special treats from time to time.

    Cons

    Parents can sometimes be difficult to handle. They complain about everything, they constantly call in to give their children last minute messages which interupt the classroom and their learning time.

    I worked at Ysleta Independent School District full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    the district has a lot of dedicated teachers and dedicated administrators. There is room to grow in the since if you have a great adminitrator you have the ability to grow.. At the same time you are able to have a weak adminiatrator and the work falls all on one shoulders.

    Cons

    In my case my position was not protected by a contract. After 13 years of service when the economy tanked programs began to be cut and mine was one of them. I feel that a lot of great employees were let go and had no protection, due to the fact we did not have a teaching contract and no it has become difficult to get back into a school dictrict setting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    upper management needs to realize that a lot of great teachers are doing multiple jobs, as well as hourly employees becauae they are fearful of loosing their job as well.

    Former Employee - Teacher in El Paso, TX

    I worked at Ysleta Independent School District full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    sent to multiple workshops to update teaching skills and methods to teach students to pass the Texas Assessment tests given at end of year.

    Cons

    At the time I taught, we were pulled out of the classroom too often for meetings, workshops, programs and we were still held responsible when students did not learn. There are many factors for not learning that are not taken into consideration, home values, lack of interest from student, parents inability to help children at home and too much blame given to the teacher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Classes need to be balanced better. Not all low performing students placed in one classroom with a teacher who has just graduated from college. Teachers that have been teaching for more than 6 years should be the only ones placed in testing levels (3-12). New teachers need an in class mentor the first year of teaching.
