Positive work place
Bus Operator (Former Employee), Houston, TXJuly 31, 2014
Pros: good benefits and time off during holiday season
Cons: disadvantage of meeting time deadlines because of traffic and construction
Positive work place with an understanding of rules and regulations for driving and driver safety. Patience with children, how to deal with medical emergencies as a first responder.

Time management was important because the students had to be on time for classes.

The hardest part of the job was meeting time lines while dealing with Houston traffic – more... congestion and construction.

The most enjoyable part of the job was watching the excited faces of the children riding the buses. – less

A productive learning experience daily
Teacher/Librarian (Former Employee), Houston, TXJuly 24, 2014
Pros: hollidays
Cons: weather emergency
In the classroom I was extremely prepared daily to introduce and maintain learning experiences for my students in all areas of teaching, such as reading, writing, math, history, English, and other disciplines. I kept the students motivated and engaged in positive learning experiences while reinforcing objectives presented that needed to be reinforced. – more... I tried to be consistant each day with each child giving each child individual help. At the end of the day the child would go home with some new knowledge. I worked with my peers sharing ideas. I got along with them also. The hardest part of the day was the evening, leaving the classroom to go home. – less

Instructor (Current Employee), Houston, TXJune 17, 2014
Cons: not enough opportunities to use the restroom, insurance is horrible, students & parents are not held accountable for actions, excessive paper work, teacher apprasial process is lengthy and unacceptable
HISD needs to be re-vamped under new leadership. The district is more concern about numbers (i.e. test scores) and how things look on paper instead of the students success.
