I developed as a person-not just a worker-while employed with Humble ISD. I became a leader, a better communicator, and a relationship builder. I started work here as a 5th grade teacher of only 2 years of prior experience and left as a Science Coordinator for my campus. I learned how to be a lesion between administration and teachers in the trenches. I developed teams and helped struggling students and teachers acquire success. Nothing about being a teacher or a coordinator is typical except that time always marches on. The most enjoyable part of my day was working with students in small groups or helping teachers by working side-by-side with them while teaching. Hardest part was keeping spirits up, hearing the negative, and seeing the frustration of others. Teaching isn't easy and many teachers came to me to vent. I built rapport with teachers, students, parents, volunteers, district personnel, and admin. I learned to work with the community and build programs that furthered the education of students and teachers. Humble ISD is a great district to work for!
You are with students in the classroom all day. They are always really interested in what you have to say, especially since you're a substitute. The teachers in the other classes are always very helpful and very nice. The support the school district provides is immense.
I provide nutritious breakfast and lunch for students. The management style is independent with supervisor contact. The overall experience was educational with understanding and following federal guidelines for child nutrition.

Basics are taught, most of the time you work from menus, and recipes. Management has extremely high production expectations for the time allowed to do the job. Co-workers who don't take job seriously, do fine, those that do have a tendency to feel used/abused. The hardest part of the job is time.....not enough to do a thorough job if you care about doing the job right and are trying to learn too. Lots of time off if you have children or want to be home in plenty of time to make dinner for your family. Holidays and summers off which allows you to recoup if you can make it through the year.
free lunch and if you have time and are working, breakfast also.
Humble ISD is a very professional place that puts the students first!
Elementary Art Educator (Former Employee) – Humble, TX – June 10, 2015
Teaching is different everyday, but rewarding everyday. I learned to be flexible and to laugh. My co-workers were my team and we always worked together, even to facilitate the Humble ISD Fine Arts Festival 10 years in a row. The hardest part of the job was trying to meet my expectations in the 50 minutes that I had for class. The most enjoyable part was watching the students learn and experience the joy of making art while in my classroom!
Typical day of work at Humble ISD included educating and ensuring that the students were safe at all times. The hardest part of the job was having a different group of students nearly every day. The most enjoyable part of the job was going home knowing that a students life was impacted for the better.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Kingwood, Texas – May 30, 2015
I enjoyed working with my peers as we were very focused on the overall benefit of learning for all of our students. The hardest part of the job was to keep up good organizational skills as well as time management, but over the years of teaching these became second nature for me.
I enjoyed this job very much because I was able to directly impact students life during their crucial adolescence years in which many students decide to go in the wrong direction (drugs, gangs, etc). I was a positive role-model for them and was able to help them get through school work that they otherwise would have struggled with or ignored. My coworkers were very smart and helpful anytime I needed help. I got along great with them. The teachers that were overseeing us were very understanding, helpful, and provided fair leadership. The hardest part of the job was trying to deal with discipline problems and getting talked back to by students sometimes or trying to get their attention. The most enjoyable part was knowing that I was making a difference in their education.
At K.M.S. I performed technology maintenance and minor repairs for the entire campus, and was very happy with my payment, hours, and respect given to me by other staff members. It was an all around good experience, made great by the administration and warm culture.
As an educator I have had the distinct pleasure of teaching our future generations; this has been a very rewarding part of my life. I no longer have the need to be tied to a school system calendar; therefore, I am looking to expand my horizons. I learned to wear many hats and react quickly to many different situations involving children and adults. I have also learned to change my teaching methods to engage students with technology. I was named teacher of the year in 2009 by my peers. In 2013 I began the 1 to 1 iPad Pilot program for Humble ISD. I was the only teacher for Humble ISD to teach in a 99% paper free environment. The most difficult part of my job is ensuring that all students feel successful no matter what their intellectual ability or home life hands them..

Custodian (Former Employee) – Humble, TX – July 18, 2012
I started with assisting with the lunch hour. Once that was done then the cafeteria was cleaned and then I would do my daily routine of cleaning restrooms and classrooms. Some times I would help to set up for special events. Management was easy to work for. My co-workers were excellnt work partners. The hardest part of the job was maintaning the restrooms while the students were still in the school. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to talk to the students during the lunch hour. The children always brought joy to the workday.
Great students, leadership from administration needs improvement
Retired (Former Employee) – Humble, TX – July 30, 2013
Long work days, 20 minute lunches, management could use improvement, co-workers were fantastic, students were fantastic, hardest part of the job was not much guidance or support from administrators, best part of the job was the students.
Working for Humble ISD. I learn some of my skills.
