HISD is a large entity. Each campus has their own culture/ideals. It is impossible to make statements that...

Suggestions for improvement

  • Allow teachers to have more autonomy. There is far too much micromanagement. Campuses that aren't overly wealthy or overly poor get forgotten as far as monetary decisions are concerned. Our technology is also very dated.

What I like about the company

I work for a wonderful campus that has very involved parents. Many of the teachers have been at the campus for more than 10 years. These are things that can make a year easier. That being said, not all campuses are like mine. Many campuses are staffed with brand new teachers year after year rather than retaining veteran teachers who can help provide guidance. I have been blessed.

What I dislike about the company

Wasteful spending and inequity. There is also not much consistency across the district or even smaller areas. But that can be quite difficult with such a large district. It is also way too top-heavy and there is very little autonomy anymore.
