Overall Decline at CCISD
Teacher (Former Employee) –  League City, TXJanuary 13, 2019
Clear Creek likes to promote their "Cadillac education" that's managed on a "Honda budget" but the truth is parents don't want Cadillacs or Hondas. They want babysitters, miracle workers and whipping posts. The majority of teachers are truly devoted to their jobs and to their students. Unfortunately, administrators are far more diligent at appeasing "stakeholders" than they are supporting teachers and enforcing discipline. It's not uncommon for a student to be sent to the principal for being completely disruptive, keeping their classmates from learning, only to be sent back to the classroom within 15 minutes. The only consequences are "reflective questions" and verbal redirection from an administrator. Some elementary students are even promised candy from the admin if they have a "good day" in the classroom. Teachers are held to incredibly high standards but not students or their parents. Lip service is given to Character Education but there is an obvious disconnect between what's taught by the teachers and what's administered in the office. The lunchroom is complete chaos, so much so that subs are pulled from classroom instruction to control the screaming, shouting and food throwing. All teaching staff have morning and/or afternoon duties. Duty free conference periods are typically used to disseminate information, update technology issues or as staffings for SPED. The technology department makes educating students far more difficult than is necessary and technology isn't distributed adequately, evenly or justly. As with educators all over the nations, teachers must often provide  more... their own equipment and supplies and supplies for their students. No surgeon has to buy scalpels but teachers spend hundreds of dollars at WalMart, Amazon and Teachers Pay Teachers. Lesson plans and professional development are typically done outside of the 7am - 4pm workday. Stipends are not equitable but professional expectations are.  less

Overall the people are great
Teacher (Current Employee) –  Friendswood, TXJune 28, 2018
Assistant principals are very supportive and will help with professional development goals. Class sizes are getting bigger. The most challenging part is the increasing number of responsibilities placed on teachers.
Pros
coworkers are supportive, students, popcorn Fridays
Cons
growing classes, students, lots of meetings

Many great perks
TEACHER (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 5, 2018
The training was phenomenal and the resources poured out of the sky. The hardest part of the job was dealing with supervisors who did not make an effort to know their employees.

Used to be a great place to work
TEACHER (Current Employee) –  League City, TXMay 4, 2018
New administration thinks it is important to change everything and not keep the students needs first. Teachers aren't valued and kids are no longer the priority.
Pros
summers off
Cons
Admin not listening

Teaching is hard work, but CCISD strives to make the best professional environment possible. The Superintendent and school board members truly put kids first and strive to incorporate technology into the classroom to help make our kiddos creative, collaborative, job-ready adults.
Pros
Professional Environment
Cons
All teachers everywhere work too hard! But, it's so worth it!

Student Teaching
Teacher Education in Training (Former Employee) –  League City, TXDecember 4, 2017
I was a TET student from Clear Springs High School who taught at Gilmore Elementary with Mrs. Isom and Ms. Wright. They were both amazing mentors who have taught me many ways on how I can improve my teaching skills and learn how the students learn. CCISD is an overall amazing school to go to and to be able to work in it as well. The environment is fun and exciting everyday.

4th, 7th Teacher (Current Employee) –  Friendswood, TXNovember 12, 2017
If you like a community feel at work, then CCISD is the place for you. The community is very tight knit and involved in every aspect of the school plant. There are tremendous rewards given by the education foundation as well as from community restaurants.

Communicated, collaborated, and cooperated with colleagues, supervisors, and students. Assumed the responsibilities for instructing classes when teacher was absent. Maintained, as fully as possible, the established routines and procedures of the school and classroom to which I was assigned.

Many different ways to educate people
Teacher (Former Employee) –  Clear Lake City, TXApril 6, 2017
This place was above and beyond awesome to work. The people pull together and work hard. I learned how to be nice all the time. I loved the management. The workplace culture at times was challenging, but we all had a common goal to achieve. The hardest part of the job was to deal with many different types of people at the same time. The most enjoyable part of the job was that one day when all of the different personalities and types of people agreed.
Pros
Summer school, Tutoring for extra money
Cons
Tight lunch schedule

Great students, terrible admin and parents
Teacher (Current Employee) –  League City, TXMarch 7, 2017
Administration blames everything on teachers. Parents run this school and as a result teachers have no power.

The students are fantastic to teach though.

Hostile work environment
Teacher (Former Employee) –  League City, TXJune 22, 2016
This is the worst place of employment I have ever been at. The turnover rate for teachers is two years. The administration is cliquish with certain staff members. Administrators were dishonest. The work environment was very hostile. Statistics were received during the second semester that there were too many teachers. The administration would begin a witch hunt of harassment. In August, there will be a lack of teachers, because the actual numbers would increase and there would be a sudden need of teachers; you will then see a lot of new job openings.

Some teachers knew the environment well. They would give me advice such as "don't stand out" and "cya". My life there would have been easier if I could tolerate that type of work environment.

Highly rated
Retired Teacher (Former Employee) –  League City, TXSeptember 4, 2015
Clear Creek Independent School District is a dynamic, well recognized work place in the Houston Metro area. With a student population of over 40,000, there is significant opportunity to work with a diverse group of students, parents and staff.

The administrative staff was supportive and supplied many opportunities for leaning new techniques in classroom management, technology based learning, and working with all students.

Teaching was a joy. Assisting students and watching them grow was the best part of the job.
Pros
working with a diverse student group
Cons
frequent changes in programs

Great school district
Teacher (Current Employee) –  League City, TXJuly 15, 2012
The students and parents are great, with the occasional difficult parent phone calls. Administration always supports the teacher. Other teachers are incredibly knowledgeable in their fields and want the best for their students.
