Education Assistant, Fergus, ON - June 22, 2015
A typical work day would be going in before noon and helping out around the classroom with the two classes. This would often involve answering questions related to course material, creating worksheets, assignments, and test questions, and teaching course concepts. My co-worker was always incredibly friendly and helpful and offered pointers and advice often. I learned how to present information in different ways so everyone can understand it, methods of teaching a classroom, how to grade student worksheets and tests, and how to better control a class full of students. The hardest part of the job was controlling the volume in the classroom, however I have improved in that aspect. The most enjoyable part of the job is that the students are always very funny.
