SPECIAL EDUCATION SECRETARY (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – October 3, 2017
A normal day for me at this job was different from day to day. One day I may be scheduling ARD meetings and doing the paperwork that went along with that and the next day I may be helping out in the front office all day. I was juggled around wherever they needed me but I was responsible for making sure the diagnostician had everything she needed. I made copies of student documents to be given to teachers, mailed to parents and filed additional copies for the schools records. I also called parents to confirm they could attend their child's ARD meeting. I filled in for the receptionist when she had to be out and also the attendance clerk. Substituting for teachers was also a part of my job because they were required to attend the meetings. Confidentiality was a big part of my job because working with special education documents was very private. The most enjoyable part of this job was getting to work with some good people and being off holidays and during the summer and still getting paid.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – August 30, 2017
Denton ISD had wonderful benefits. As a former teacher, I was given a wonderful insurance package. Working at Denton ISD was an enjoyable experience because the administration was wonderful and the children were excited to learn.
Child Nutrition (Current Employee) – Providence Village, TX – June 27, 2017
Working for the Denton District children nutrition is great. It is very easy to work with the employees. The managers are easy to get along with very hard working. The place itself is great getting to see the smiles on the children is awesome. The hardest thing is my children don't go to that school. Getting to know my co-workers.
ATC Job Shadow Internship Program (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – May 28, 2017
I liked that all the staff was there to help me since I was a student at the time doing an internship. I enjoyed that the customers liked coming to the pharmacy and every staff member had genuine conversations with them.
teacher (Current Employee) – Denton, TX – April 7, 2017
Disappointed in teacher support from administration and board. Curriculum is backwards compared to other districts and is difficult to access. They do not supply teachers with basic necessities, i.e. a pencil sharpener.
It's a job to help student's find their way back from a trouble atmosphere & return to the public school environment.
Secondary Math Teacher (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – April 2, 2017
I worked with a great group of teachers who care about troubled student's. The work environment is stressful, the teacher moves from classroom to classroom with class supplies. There are meetings & planning to attend, lesson plan writing & forms to fill out on the computer. One satisfying & rewarding aspect of the job is having some students who return as staff members & are an example to student's coming in.
Schools are always welcoming. Substitute teaching is not an easy gig. It's always a typical teaching day with the bumps and bruises of any other job. Kids will be kids and you can't let that discourage you. It's an amazing experience that I cherish.
Denton ISD speech lead is led by a person who has gotten there by pure seniority. She doesn't know how to lead horses to a trough. Worst leader I've ever run across. Couldn't make a decision to save her life. The principles at my school were equally awful. I would classify, as most my co-workers did, as bullies. Crying when you were called in for a meeting before you even got there, having anxiety attacks when you were in the room with them was the norm. They put me on a 'growth plan' when I was a CF - my first job out of college. I quit very soon after that.
