    employees receive computer
    able to to be creative in lesson planning/ not set in stone day to day lessons

    Cons

    Admin does not support teachers, especially when it comes to parents and kids trying to get their way. Admin will side with them no matter what. Referrals are not taken seriously.

    Advice to Management

    There is now a survey going out for the parents. What about a survey for the teachers?!

    I worked at Comal ISD full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice facilities and many great people working there. Great students with a lot of potential. Great technical staff and paraprofessionals. Great support services.

    Cons

    Too many principals fired and teachers put on leave over minor things due to pressure put on board and superintendent by threatening parents.

    Advice to Management

    Get your facts straight and stand up for administrators and great teachers when it is here say. You have created a hostile environment for staff and empowered hostile parents. Tread carefully with people's reputations and careers when nothing criminal is going on.

    To live and work in New Braunfels is a great opportunity. The people are great, the kids are great, and just a great place to be.

    Pros

    Teachers create environment of welcome and really try to help one another out. Reading & Writing district specialists are wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    Principal brought in is ridiculous!!! Totally looks at kids as if they are just a number. A specific number, STAAR test number. No consideration of what they are going through at home and how their poverty level (which from her own mouth, has no clue about) and family issues affects their performance.

    Advice to Management

    Kids are small humans, remember that when you decide to bring in a head-hunter

    I have been working at Comal ISD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The superintendent is realistic in that he understands the need to give employees the chance to do little things, like wear jeans to work every once in a while. Even though the district isn't small anymore it still has the small town feel to it in that it is easy to get to know others at other schools and work with them.

    Cons

    The pay is not equivalent to other districts in the area but many feel the supportive atmosphere is worth the loss of compensation.
