    I have been working at Spring Branch Independent School District (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy driving cdl transportation. I am a workaholic, also helping others is my specialty. Getting along with coworkers makes it easier for me and my job. I follow directions well.

    Cons

    Working as a part-time worker is sometimes okay for some people that don't need money. But I myself would love to work 8 to 12 hours daily, then I would know I've accomplished what I've achieved.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to management is keeping being a great manager. There's nothing wrong with management. I couldn't complain about something that's put together.

    Great teammates and the district has pretty good technology.

    Not many avenues to advance in your career.

    I worked at Spring Branch Independent School District as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to get along with staff and helpful students. Always variety.

    Cons

    Lack of respect for certified substitute teachers from staff.
    Regular staff - not the most honest coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    HR staff - too much hubris and arrogance, no follow through, painfully slow.
    Sub job- 2-3 principal refs for this job is asking too much.

    Spring Branch has excellent curriculum guideline. All the professional development opportunities are great!

    Cons

    One has to be careful which principal you work for because some of them are not leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Anytime the turn over of teacher at any campus is noticed please talk to the teachers and find a new leader to lead the group of teachers.

    I worked at Spring Branch Independent School District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many good values, very little direct support. Mediocre benefits. The district is trying to replace experienced teachers with new hires so as to save money, thus education will suffer in the short run until the teachers become trained.

    Cons

    The children come from poor families. Difficult to teach students. Very little support from administration, things just get handed back to teachers while putting blame on them for all shortcomings.

    Advice to Management

    Support the working teacher. Give them the tools to succeed and be true to experienced teachers.
