    Great coworkers! Caring, hard working, dedicated employees. Summers off! Wonderful supportive parents. Wonderful site manager! Teaching these wonderful children is so rewarding!

    I worked at Plano ISD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Well educated coworkers.
    Involved principal.
    Pay is decent.
    The school I was at researched, then did a test run on block lunch before implementing it. They did the process very well, and I was impressed with the concept and how it benefited the kids.

    Cons

    All benefits for schools are terrible.
    They don't really listen to teachers with different experiences when they provide a different viewpoint.

    Advice to Management

    Get leadership then campus staff trained in the Dallas culture that is moving up to PISD.

    There was a good flexibility with my schedule and number of jobs per week.

    It takes a while of working to build up a good reputation in order to get the jobs with the good teachers and students who are wanting to work. Some teachers are less disciplined so there classes are harder to substitute.
