    I worked at Aldine Independent School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The salary is good. Where I worked the staff were friendly and helpful. They offer educational training in the summer and throughout the school year

    Cons

    Tons of paperwork, very controlled, reading department required all classrooms look the same, teachers teach the same way. Unable to feel like yourself. Teachers are overworked with no rewards. You will work after hours and on weekends. Not a lot of support from administrators.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your reading program and move administrator around every five years

    Pros

    Job stability & hours are good.

    Cons

    Way below the average pay, paultry annual pay increases, no bonuses or incentives, health insurance rates are horrific. Their slogan should be "confusion and sadness."

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees and please reevaluate the underqualified district staff that you've promoted only because you knew you could get away with paying them less than a qualified applicant. Those employees have no idea how to do their job properly and end up costing the district more money in the long run.

    I worked at Aldine Independent School District (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Consistent work, consistent pay, staff/coworkers are great team players.

    Cons

    Paraprofessional/Teacher Assistant pay and raises were not fair compensation to the work load. Administration unconcerned about work moral, pay and raises were not up to the national pay scale for special aide assistants.

    Advice to Management

    You should at least listen to the paraprofessionals because they are the staff who spend more time with the students. They are the staff dependent on to assist with those kids with behavior problem. They are left often to work with more with the kids because the teachers were often distracted with testing preparations and paper work.
