    I have been working at Galveston Independent School District full-time

    Pros

    Having the opportunity to work in a diverse school district with like-minded individuals. Professional development is ongoing. Growth opportunities available.

    Cons

    Resources can be limited at times. Very large emphasis on testing performance. Some policies can be unclear and under-communicated at times.

    Advice to Management

    I feel that GISD would really benefit from a campus mentor available to new teachers to help with grading policies and campus related questions.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Galveston Independent School District (Galveston, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Two people asking standard education questions/interview questions. They had a list of questions which they took turns asking me. It was the principal and a lead teacher from a section. It was in the principal's office. They shared with me the type of person they were looking for and asked me to share who I was and what I was looking for. They were friendly and professional. I wore a nice dress and shoes, no stockings. They had a closed door meeting and then offered the job on the spot because they needed someone immediately; school was getting ready to start.
