    I have been working at Judson ISD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with students. School hours and yearly schedule. Training for professional development provided throughout the year. Encouragement from other staff.

    Cons

    Aide positions have low pay. One of the lowest in all of San Antonio. Overall discipline and school climate is negative. Admin does not back up teacher/aide when students are reprimanded.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff and back them up with difficult students. Offer pay that is comparable to other districts.

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

    Pros

    Love the kids. All day every day.

    Cons

    This place really sucks the life out of you. It's known as The Judson Way: Find a district that's successful; try to steal their ideas; force your staff to implement for 1 or 2 years tops; react to something else a year later and forget about all the time and money poured into the other initiatives. Take take take more more more from the teachers and DEMAND that they put their own health, wealth and families behind the admin's desires to polish their image or shirk responsibility of blame.

    Advice to Management

    I hate this place. You need to seriously vet your admin and district personal. They are perfectly described as incompetent. I have experience in 2 other districts and they both put Judson to shame.

    Pros

    Pick the days you work

    Cons

    Sometimes when you do pick a job for a teacher you like, or they request you you dont always get it.

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

    Pros

    Faculty and staff are wonderful. I loved working and interacting with the students and their families.

    Cons

    Not enough time during the day to complete all the work. Involves a lot of unpaid overtime without pay. Inconsistent expectations.

    Advice to Management

    A pat on the back every once in a while would be helpful.
