    Pros

    Good schools, district management is great at what they do! I taught here for five years, and loved it! I will miss Conroe ISD.

    Cons

    I have no cons, working in education is always stressful, but Conroe ISD did things the right way in my opinion, they put so much into supporting their teachers.

    I have been working at Conroe Independent School District part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, have your own schedule. People are nice and helpful

    Cons

    Sometimes if you don't know the class you are subbing for, it may end up with really bad behaviors and undisciplined!

    Advice to Management

    I guess schools should mark the classes that had issues and add extra pay for this class to sub. At least substitute teachers will know about it and be prepared and encouraged with the extra pay!

    I worked at Conroe Independent School District full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay compared to districts around us, and excellent benefits. Good support system from district coaches!

    Cons

    Sometimes, there are way too many meetings, and you lose your conference time.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest working on minimizing the time spent in meetings such as taking out the chit-chat time and get down to business...better direction, leadership, and management.

    I worked at Conroe Independent School District part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Conroe is has an organized substitute program for the school district and with the help of google maps on your phone , it makes getting to new schools every day super easy. Pay is always correct and the elementary teachers always make good sub plans that are clear and easy to follow.

    Cons

    It would help if the pay was higher.

    Advice to Management

    Certified teaching subs would work in this position much longer if the pay was higher, around 125 per day.
