Permanent Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Middle school – December 1, 2018
subs are not valued the same as a certified teacher but put in the same amount of work or more than one. Subs do not get bonuses or benefits. The district should include some kind of incentive as the district is full of subs. The district should want to keep their subs because it looks like they can’t even keep certified teachers because these kids are out of control and walk around running schools. Every student should be put through a military class and learn some respect because we can’t control where they come from but we can control 8 hours of their day and we should try to mold them into respectful growing kids. If the district has subs putting in 20-60 hours a week or two they should treat them equally as teachers in the respect of bonuses and benefits. Without subs the district wouldn’t be able to function. If the district can’t even keep or get certified teachers then who will teach core and elective classes? How will schools stay afloat? Substitutes save your butt. So value them.
Giving back in the sense of teaching and molding the next generation
No benefits or bonuses, very low pay, and checks always messed up - missing pay
Middle School Teacher (Former Employee) – Beaumont TX – October 23, 2018
The kids run the show and good teachers are run off by these child bullies. The administration does not care and are completely focused on teaching for the test. Students do not care about the tests and sabotage themselves and then the teacher is blamed. The other teachers do care and try to help each other but there are cliques too who spread gossip and talk badly about the teachers and the students. Principals are ineffective and do not care about the teachers. We are told to handle problems ourselves and the referral system is a joke. Fights, cussing, screaming, and play fighting is commonplace among the students— Teachers yell because the kids don’t respond to anything else. It is the most stressful job I’ve ever had.

There are great educators in BISD. They go beyond the call of duty for many things to assist students. Sometimes the best candidate is not selected for the job or is not posted so all who are qualified can apply for the open position.
Office Clerk (Paraprofessional) (Former Employee) – Clifton J Ozen High – August 6, 2018
The problem with the job bat BISD was that what they said and what actually happened was two different things. AS an institution of education they did not really see the big picture of what students needed or the parents of the student. They did not encourage an atmosphere of helping and motivation.
Social Studies Teacher (Former Employee) – Beaumont, TX – July 18, 2018
My time at BISD was very educational as regard to administration and some staff members.
I was able to gain knowledge regarding education as new teacher. I taught grade 7 and 8 which consisted of US History and Texas History. I had the pleasure of teaching six classes a day for 11 years at the same middle school. I truly enjoyed teaching Pre-ap students as well as regular students.
I was given the opportunity to attend workshops that gave me the skills and ability to be a very good teacher. It was a great experience for me and my students. In the 2013, was nominated for the Reaud Award.
Becoming a teacher was my utmost dream, I was able to accomplished it.
Teaching Pre-ap students and exploring the education world.
Teacher (Spanish I & II) (Former Employee) – Beaumont, TX – April 15, 2018
I was a Spanish Teacher, teaching Spanish I and II. I had to make 2 sets of lessons plans per week. Students were very nice and respectful. I enjoyed working there because this is the high school I graduated from.
Challenging job with rewards reaching far beyond the paycheck.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Beaumont, TX – April 4, 2018
My day began at 7:00 with preparations. It ended when I finished for the day, sometimes as late as 9:00. I taught 3 classes of English and Reading to 84 4th grade students for 7 years, and 1st grade class of 24 students for 6 years (all subjects). Bmt. ISD
I learned that dealing with parent's children is a lot like dealing with people's money. They both take patience, good management, hard work and focus.
The diverse cultures in my different jobs have proven to be helpful in dealing with all peoples. It is important to be able to relate to all cultures positively and with respect.
The hardest part of any job is communication. I am well versed in English and have excellent communications skills. I listen well and do not mind going the extra mile for people.
Dealing with people to me is the most enjoyable part of any job. It may not always be easy, but I enjoy turning a negative into a positive for both my employers and the people I deal with.
Holidays off with my children, which are all grown now.
Confidential (Former Employee) – Beaumont – March 8, 2018
Let me get this out of the way and say that there are some very good people working for BISD, most of whom are staff. Management/Administration, on the other hand, leave a lot to be desired. In many positions throughout the district they put the most incompetent people in charge. Almost zero accountability from the superintendent on down. If they can screw you over, chances are they will and chances are they'll get away with it. Word to the wise, don't cross swords with anybody who is a member of a certain large church in Beaumont. Many of the administration go there and they've got a stranglehold on that place. Pay was good, time off even better, but they don't care one iota about your personal or family life in spite of saying that they do. The corruption that was rampant at that place is still there, it's just hidden a little better now.
Pay was good, time off, very good co-workers
Unbelievably incompetent supervisors, lack of concern for employees wellbeing/family life
This is a great company to work for and you will enjoy each day that you arrive on campus. I had several teams I worked with and we formed bonds that I will always cherish. The work place is fast paced and you will learn a lot in record time. You will have a great team to work with. I enjoyed my time there.
Bisd has long been known for its many deceptive practices such as cheating, embezzlement of funds, and various other ethics and moral violations. They are notorious for presenting a student centered and children focused environment that is everything but that. Instead you have various cliques and friends that promote favoritism and loyalty to many personal agendas and misleading datat that falsely represent the school districts true performance.
CONFIDENTIAL (Current Employee) – Beaumont, TX – September 20, 2017
I feel that only some can come in off the streets because they are friends with someone in the Administrative level and make more money than those who have been at this place and have an excellent work history, more credentials than they need for a particular job, but are not rewarded financially for it- all the while more work is being added to your work load.
I will miss working for BISD, I had to relocate because of a hurricane, but for anyone headed that way Please look into a job there. Very friendly, helpful and awsome. BISD taught me the correct way go from Student to a funcationable adult.
Teacher, grades 6-8, English and Reding (Former Employee) – Beaumont, TX – August 9, 2017
My school was known as one of the worst schools to work for in regards to discipline. Even with a very strong principal, discipline was out of control. There was very little support given to teachers in regards to discipline. You were expected to "deal with it" no matter what "it" was. Writing referrals became a joke, as nothing was done as far as punishment goes, and the student was right back in class with a slap on the wrist and a hug within a matter of minutes.
Publications Manager /Digital Media Instructor (Current Employee) – Central Medical Magnet HS – July 15, 2017
Although Beaumont has its minor challenges, it is still a great place to rear children. "I appreciate all the valuable experience I've gained working in Beaumont ISD." The school district is very diverse. Beaumont ISD offers many career paths for students to fulfill the abundance of skilled labor career opportunities.
