EMSB fun and challenging
Child Care/Daycare Worker/ Special Educator (Former Employee), Montreal, QCJune 11, 2014
* I first started working there as a substitute child care worker or special ed. technician. My schedule would vary from day to day and from week to week. Mostly working in high schools, I had to follow the child's schedule.

* As we all know, everyone is different, therefore I had to have different approaches with different children. It was my responsability – more... to get to know them and have them trust me.

* I have learned to treat everyone with respect, regardless of their age group and to never under estimate one's intelligence.

* The management/school principal(s) and my co-workers were helpful and great. I never had any problems with them. There was a mutual respect, I did what was expected of me and made sure I learned from my mistakes.

*The Hardest part of the job was not having a stabl eplace to work from. The uncertainty of my schedule and of where I would be working the next day or week.

*The most enjoyable part is when being appreciated and recognized for my hard workk – less

Pros: summer and winter vacations.
Cons: technology part in the woodshop.
Preparing experiments for students in grade 9 and 10. Always fun working with students on a daily basis.The hardest part of my job were the long hours preparing for exams which became all worthwhile with vacation to follow. The most enjoyable part was when the students experiments were successful. Never had problems working with teachers and management. – more... The atmosphere I created for myself was maintained with my co-workers once they entered my space. Outside of my space I adjusted to suit. Overall my experience was wonderful. – less

Productive and motivating environment.
Contracted Social Studies/Math Teacher (Former Employee), Montréal, QCMay 8, 2013
Implemented stimulating lessons to capture student’s attention and interest. Utilized discussion-based lessons in order to promote a deeper understanding of the concepts. Created and administered weekly quizzes and monthly tests to track student progress. Offered after-school tutoring to help struggling students improve their critical thinking and problem-solving – more... skills. Participated in various extracurricular activities. Attended all staff meetings and professional development workshops.

Having to deal with thousands of students in both jobs has not only given me confidence, patience, and ambition for excellence, but it has also thought me how unwavering support can really make all the difference in someone’s life. That is the ultimate goal.

Great co-workers very friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Keeping on motivating the students was sometimes the hardest part of my job. It has taught me how to persevere and to effectively problem solve by approaching the situation with an open mind while developing different strategies to resolve and take charge.

The most enjoyable/rewarding part of my job was to make a difference is someone's life. – less
