inclusive place of work
Reception (Current Employee), Kitchener, ONJune 1, 2013
Challenging, ongoing interaction with the public and staff, opportunity to create own work environment, Almost everyday there is something new to learn or address. I come to work early so that I can have switchboard and reception ready at 8:00 which is my start time. I book rooms, answer phones, receive mail and packages and direct to appropriate person, – more... respond to emails, admit people through locked entrance, other assigned duties. Best part of the day is the interaction I have with staff and the public who walks in the door. – less

Teacher
Family Studies Teacher (Current Employee), CambridgeApril 24, 2013
Pros: seeing the students grow and achieve in my classes.
Cons: seeing students who do not work to their potential.
I have three classes a day. The classes are 75 minutes each. I pack a lot of work into each one because of being on the semester system. The students can vary in levels of ability and learning. My teaching methods have to accommodate these levels. Family Studies covers a wide variety of subjects related to family living, food and nutrition, parenting, – more... resource management and fashion. My work experience prior to going into teaching has helped me become the type of teacher I am today. I expect my students to do well with me and I provide them with many opportunities to do so. – less

Great place to work because of the children
Educational Assistant (Former Employee), Cambridge, ONJuly 26, 2012
Pros: great hours, summers off.....
Cons: difficult children
Everyday was different, there were times when I was with one specific child and then there were times when I was in a classroom assisting the teacher with whatever she wanted. This could mean taking a small group or just milling around the room helping whenever I could. Principals I worked with were all terrific and my co-workers were the best, all – more... caring wonderful teachers. Hardest part of the job was trying to prevent a child with special needs from erupting. Most enjoyable was being with the children – less
