Pros: Pleasant co-workers
Cons: poor pay, resources, uneven quality of schools, paper work
Although staff at the board are friendly in person, they are difficult to get a hold of otherwise. You can expect to wait months (once hired) until you receive a contract and are paid according to the paltry pay scale. You may earn a better salary as a supply teacher. Quality of schools is very uneven, as well as professional development opportunities. Equity and gender violence education appears to be nearly non-existent. Supply teaching opportunities limited and the online system is rarely used. Supply teachers must approach school individually and then cross their fingers.
