Micromanaged and had 2 supervisors with different agendas
Elementary School Nurse Richardson (Former Employee) – Richardson, TX – April 6, 2018
The nurse supervisor had one agenda but the principal had a different agenda and would ask you to do things that violated The Nurse Practice Act and then would take it out on your personally when you told her that you could not do what she wanted you to do.
No lunch, No supplies, No support. You are an emergency room with no one to help and no equipment

RISD always tried to be on top of the newest educational models. The principals that I worked with were, for the most part, very supportive and just as hardworking as the teachers. My one complaint (aside from one bad principal at the JR high that I worked with), is that RISD always seemed to attempt new initiatives, but they would only last for about 3 years before we were having to go to a whole new set of trainings for the newest education model.

My typical day at RISD is making sure my computer Lab is running up to date and ready host 12 classes a day. The teachers have an efficient running classroom equipment and service. I have learned how to deal with children of different nationality and race. The management is good and ready to work with you. RISD is a diverse environment and easy to get along with fellow employees and students. The hard part is as good as the enjoyable part. If you love children, you know what I mean.Children are hard to manage but at the same time the best people to deal with; I have enjoyed working with them ad have learned a lot from them as well. Overall it is a comfortable environment to work.
I have enjoyed working at the RISD. It's been great working with the students and supporting the teachers and staff. It's been a great 15 years. I would recommend this environment to young, working Mothers.
7th Grade Science Teacher and Coach (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 20, 2017
Taught the first 3 years of my teaching career in this district. They do a great job with the curriculum and providing support for new teachers. Balancing everything is still a major challenge (for all teachers in general).
Second Grade Teacher (Current Employee) – Richardson, TX – January 28, 2017
This is a great district to work for. The workplace culture, administration are very helpful and the staff works together as a team. The hardest part is adjusting lessons and the most enjoyable is watching the students grow.
