    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.
