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

ENGLISH TEACHER (Current Employee) –  Friendswood, TXJune 25, 2019
Clear Creek ISD offers a great learning environment for both students and teachers. There are such excellent teachers here. As colleagues, we encourage each other to be better. Extensive training is provided to us in the areas of technology, curriculum, professional development, just to mention a few. It is definitely the best district for which I've worked. I don't plan to leave here until I retire.
