    I worked at Pearland ISD full-time

    Pros

    Those of us who started Turner HS had it's best interest in mind for the community and our students.

    Cons

    Hiring from leadership wasn't the best. The went on "feelings" rather than actually listening to an interviewee. Those in Departmental leadership positions had little say in who actually got hired allowed a lot of incompetent teachers to be hired.
