I worked at Spring Independent School District full-time (More than a year)
*Steady Work if you want it.
*If looking to get into teaching subbing for the district and certain school's is a great way to get your foot in the door.
*When subbing you get to choose the days (or half days) you want to work, and those you don't want to work.
*Kids are rough, really rough, especially the further south you go. I have to temper that with the fact that there are some absolute perfect adorable children as well.
*Some teacher's don't have plans together, that makes for a terrible long and difficult day, happens I'd say 1/3 of the time.
Advice to Management
*Pay your Substitutes more.
*Limit classroom sizes, there are 30+ kids in every classroom, far too much for an effective learning environment.
I applied online. I interviewed at Spring Independent School District (Spring, TX) in May 2017.
I sat in front of three women, one pretty much led the interview and the other two just watched. Interview was only supposed to be 30 minutes and lasted 1 hour and 30 minutes. They asked a lot of questions, took me on a tour of the school after. 20 minutes later they offered me the position, via phone.
