Teacher (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 September 2016
Working at Edmonton Catholic Schools has been a huge learning experience for me. It has allowed me to grow as a person, teacher, coach, mentor and administrator. The enviornment is warm, and collegial while keeping the needs of the students in the forefront.
100 Voices Teacher & Physical Education Teacher (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 6 February 2016
I love my job and I enjoy the variety and spending time with the great students. I have learned great classroom management skills as well as being diverse in my teaching since I teach students Pre-K to Grade 6 on a daily basis.
Sub Assistant Teacher (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 September 2015
8:30 my day officially starts as the children come into the class room. I chat with a teacher about what will be happening throughout the morning. Then we have lessons. I usually support the lower ability children on the carpet and at their table. During the day I have a supervision outside. At 12:00 o'clock I have lunch in the afternoon. I assist kids whichever table/activity the teacher request. It is a lot less structured, as the children mainly free flow in the afternoons, so it's a case of going with the flow and doing what i am told!
Teacher/Counselor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 October 2015
I worked with a dynamic, dedicated staff of the highest calibre. Really! Consistently, teachers cared about the students, their progress, and their future. They were a great bunch of people - fun, caring, helpful to the students and to each other. Of course, there were 'politics' but such is life in any profession. No two days were ever the same! Teaching, however, is demanding more than the public will ever see. Long hours are spent in preparing lessons and marking, extracurricular activities, committee work, department meetings, staff meetings, district meetings, professional development and parent meetings so often the job work/life balance may be skewed in favour of work to the detriment of family. It's a challenge to keep the balance. Overall, if you like teaching/counseling and I did enjoy it, it was a good place to work.
Great atmosphere and wonderful people to work with
Special Needs Teacher Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, Alberta – 1 August 2013
I work with a boy in grade 5 who has DownsSyndrom, ODD and severe violent behaviours. I prepare his lessons when he's looking at books then we go over them together in class and outside of class. The teacher and I make a great team and work together to solve problems and find solutions. Managment is very supportive. The hardest part is finding different ways for my student to be interested and want to do his work, but its very challenging and rewarding in the end. Most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the student progress academically as well as emotionally and getting a hug at the end of a rough day.
