Instructional Aide - Special Ed (Former Employee) – Haltom City, TX – August 20, 2016
Everyday I worked with great staff and loving students. I learned the different student behaviors and how to comfort them educationally or help them with the correct curriculum. The principals I've worked with have been very understanding and help out any staff member in any way to meet their needs. The hardest part of the job is the end of the year seeing some students go. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing a student move forward or accomplish a goal with the help or motivation I provided.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Haltom City, TX – February 13, 2016
Its a great place to work. Take out the students and it would be an excellent place to work. You get no support from the staff you are subbing in. You receive verbal abuse from students because the Administration does little punish them.
TEACHER (Current Employee) – Haltom City, TX – December 16, 2015
I love my job! Birdville is a wonderful district with an extremely supportive administration. My teaching colleagues are amazing, dedicated leaders of the community, and my second family. We are a very close-knit staff with a high degree of compassion. The hardest part of my job is dealing with the stress that comes along with teaching a STAAR tested grade level.
As a retired Teacher I was allowed to work on a part-time bases. Returning to the classroom reinvigorated my desire.
TEACHER (Current Employee) – Haltom City, TX – June 14, 2013
Teaching students to be successful in taking the TAKS Science test was rewarding. I was employed under a grant for TAKS. the completion rate turned out to be 98%. My only regret was not being able to see the last 6 Seniors pass the test this summer.
my schedule would not allow me to work after 11:00 am, this raised some problems in the duties i was allowed to perform.

School Bus Driver (Current Employee) – Haltom City , Haltom – June 15, 2015
I've driven a school bus in California , however , this has been much more challenging dealing with special need children. Most of my co-workers have been good to work with , however the current administration , leaves a lot to be desired. The best part ,was working with the teachers ,and parents, in finding ways to deal with each child individually.
Working with some great people
Dealing with some who have no idea on how to work with special need children
Teacher (Current Employee) – North Richland Hills, Texas – July 19, 2015
A typical day was eventful. I spent most of the time in my classroom. This position was started by another teacher and I picked the job up in January. The transition was difficult however very successful. I enjoyed the administration and children.
Computer E.A. (Former Employee) – North Richland Hills, TX – August 26, 2012
This was an amazing job, I was able to combine my love for computers and technology with my love for education and children. I became the Computer E.A. and after being hired and realizing the job description was a bit bland I asked my boss if I could actually TEACH technology to the students and not just watch them play games. She gave me full range to commit to this new idea. I was able to teach the children the technical terms for the computer parts and different programs such as excel, word, powerpoint, how to search the internet and create simple web pages. I also took care of all the teachers computers and printers if they had problems. I took over the yearbook, 4th grade newspaper, and talent show. I jumped in with both feet and loved every second of this job! The only thing would be the insurance isn't great and the pay is low but being happy is better then being rich and miserable!
summers with my kids, getting to watch kids learn and create with technology
English Teacher (Current Employee) – Haltom City, TX – September 18, 2013
Every single day is filled with its own unique challenges. There is plenty of room for both professional and personal growth, but the demands are quite time consuming. Teachers are no longer simply educators of certain content. Rather, we are secretaries, organizers, coordinators, nurses, police officers, and, sometimes, miracle workers. Overall, teaching has been fulfilling, but I am compelled after 11 years to explore other aspects of my BS, which is in political science.
