    Pros

    -You get to work with children and make a difference in their lives
    -summers/holidays off
    -district matches 403b contribution
    -decent classroom technology available (depending on campus)
    -Superindentendant Ryder Warren is an excellent leader

    Cons

    -insurance and any other benefits are very expensive
    -teachers are very overworked and seem to have no power over decisions made in the classroom
    -classroom decisions are made my higher administration who are never in the classrooms; oftentimes the decisions don't even make sense and/or do not benefit students
    -the only thing that matters is standardized test scores and that's all that is taught in classrooms: how to pass TAKS
    -students are over-pressured to pass the tests

    Advice to Management

    -offer individual teacher praise instead of a general "good job to everyone"
    -allow teachers to make classroom decisions instead of micromanaging
    -teach students how to think by providing meaningful learning, not "how to pass the test"
