Custodian (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 April 2017
It was a privilege to work for the TDSB while I was still in high-school. It gave me the point of view of working in the real world and helped me get stable on my own as a young adult. I was able to pay my bills and still have time to balance my academics and social life. This was only a part time job for a year. But I was thankful for the experience.
Schooling Information System (SIS) Team Intern (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 24 April 2017
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Toronto District School Board. The team leads were very helpful and the SIS team made me feel comfortable and at ease. It was informative to know how to help the Toronto region with administrative help.
Educator/Teacher (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 April 2017
Even though this was a number of years ago, my time at Windfields was really enjoyable. The school administration was supportive and helped me grown as an educator. The students were generally well behaved and motivated to learn.
Special Needs Assistant/Educational Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 April 2017
As a "supply" it is easy to find full time work but unfortunate that advancement to full time opportunities are scarce. Rate of pay is fair and once you are full time benefits and vacation/sick days are awesome
Educational Assistant/Lunchroom Supervisor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 March 2017
Being around teachers that were all concerned about the well being of young minds was very inspirational to witness. It was a very rewarding job that allowed me to be at work but also to be at home while my children were young.
On-Call Lunchroom Supervisor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 March 2017
I enjoy working for the TDSB as a Early Childhood Educator. I am able to use the skills I learned in College and implement them at my work place. There is always space to learn and improve your knowledge of how to work with children.
Social Service Worker (Interim Student) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 February 2017
Working here was fun because I get to work with youth who have developmental disability as well. I learned how to talk to them while helping them. My employees were very understanding in showing me more skills while working with these kids.
Fun environment but very serious when it comes to work
Labourer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 January 2017
A typical day would start at me coming in at 7am and start work at 7:30. From their we would be briefed on what we were supposed to have done by the end of the day. after we finished our work we clean up the break room kitchen and washroom. The work environment was very fun were one of the workers kept teaching us new things while keeping it very enjoyable.
TDSB is a great work place with general positive work spirit.
Lunchroom Supervisor (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 17 January 2017
TDSB is a great workplace with general positive work spirit. People are helpful and understanding, always ready to improve them selves and do the best for the kids. Working with kids is great opportunity and fun.
Clerical Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 January 2017
Job security is good as well as compensation and benefits. There is definitely a culture of fear which comes from the excessive nepotism that exists at the TDSB. However, since it is such a large organization, one can find an area that works for them and remain in a good working environment.
Occasional Teacher (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 September 2016
A typical day at work could be challanging due to the various needs of the students. This school is inner city school that is located in high priority neighbourhood in the westend of Toronto. What makes up for the behavioural issues is the amazing people that work in this school. Due to the fact that I am a occassional teacher who sometimes gets long term teaching positions I have been fortunate enought to work with the teacher from every division. While working with my grade teams I have learned that they are all worderful hardworking people who would do anything to support each other to meet the unique individual needs of every child in this school. As for the adminstration, they are two very supportive individuals who understand that without their continued support for both or professional growth and daily school life things would not be as positive as they are in this school. You can always count on this admin to help you through anything. The only regret I have from this place is that I was not able to get full-time permanant work due to low enrollement.
