Enjoy working with children and assist them with their needs
Lunch Assistant (Current Employee) – Beckett Farm Public School, Markham, ON – 6 November 2017
I enjoy working with small children and I have the experience of raising my own 5 children. I quickly identify their need and deal with it with utmost responsibility. I guide children with their indoor and outdoor activities. I myself have a vast experience of preparing children foods and serving them in a class set up. I give special emphasis on hygiene and safe environment.
I get appreciation of my work from my superiors.
My working hours are very short. Just one hour a day.
Student Summer Caretaker (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 21 September 2017
Worked as a summer student caretaker. Job was easy but fairly boring. Great job for a student returning home for the summer. Unfortunately the summer students are the only un-unionized members of the staff.
Summer Groundskeeper and Maintenance staff (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 12 September 2017
The York Region District School Board was my summer employer for my first four years of post secondary school and I could not think of a better place to work as a student. Although the pay might have been low, the job itself and the life lessons that I learned from the people I worked with were well worth it.
Interactive, positive, insightful and occasionally challenging and demanding

Supply Early Childhood Educator (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 18 July 2017
I love this job. it has always been my dream to work in the school board. I get to meet many different children and go to many different schools. I assist the teacher in any tasks that they ask me to do.
Teacher (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 8 July 2017
I love working for the YRDSB.
The job is to help bring our next generation to a place where they can find meaningful lives within their country and to make an impact globally. It's a huge responsibility and a privilege to be a part of it.
Each person is important, and we work together as a team. Support staff, admin and teachers all encourage and support one another.
Going into a new school where the environment is unfamiliar can be challenging at times.
The most enjoyable part of the job is being a part of an 'aha' moment with a student, when a concept finally makes sense to them or they master a skill they've been working so hard on.

If you don't have an insider you wont get a permanent job. If you will notice most of them are relatives or family members of a manager or an existing employees.. The chance of getting a permanent job if you don't know anybody inside is close to none. I hope the board can address that issue when it comes to job opportunity equality.
School Assistant (Former Employee) – Sutton, ON – 30 May 2017
working here was alright. No direction with what to do and when. Nobody to really answer to besides people in office. Kids were so cute but there is a lot of classrooms that need an extra staff member to keep them all on track. unfair to the kids.
