    Pros

    Like most teaching jobs, the teachers in general are good people.

    Cons

    However the teachers are pretty upset over the whole grade thing that happened last year, and that is the only thing on the admins minds.

    Advice to Management

    Actually be a school

    Pros

    The majority of the students are delightful and respectful. The district is in transition and change is on the way. There is a strong PTO presence which gives great support to its campuses and student bodies.

    Cons

    Because of the transition, there were moments of disorganization. The ELA curriculum was quite hard to follow initially and had quite a few missing components. There is no union presence and the administrators know this and get away with unfair practices.

    I have been working at Spring Independent School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I appreciate that Spring has certain rules and procedures that transfer to other campuses, so that students know what to do no matter which campus they go to.

    Cons

    TEA is very active in Spring at the moment. I believe the ship is sinking and they are scrambling to figure it all out. It makes for a very intense and hostile work environment. Not enough decisions are in consideration of what's best for the students. That should be what the education system is all about.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on top of things and not only when TEA is bringing heat. In particular, more attention should be paid to the RTI process and Special Education programs.

    I worked at Spring Independent School District full-time

    Pros

    The district has great technology and invests heavily in it. Plenty of opportunity for professional development.

    Cons

    There is clearly a demarcation line in regards to the quality of education. The southern part of the district is not as affluent as the northern part. The southern part has more of the title 1 schools and lower income students.

    Advice to Management

    Stop picking on teachers and allow them to just come in and do what they came to do.
