With this being my first volunteer experience in a professional setting, I learned first hand how to work in a team involvement, where communication and respect were key factors in not only getting the job done but also providing an enjoyable work experience.

It's a government job
This is the third biggest school board in the province of Ontario. If you don't know if you want a job that is paid by the government and has the freedom of a public job you are dumb

Relaxed environment, Great People, Need Better Mgmt in some areas
My dept was very unorganized. Reactive versus proactive. Many processes are old and outdated and VERY time consuming.
Overall, the people were great but mgmt could improve.

Learning new ways of handling difficult situations and always trying to make a difference students days really is rewarding.
Pros
Never boring
Cons
Being on a supply list never knowing where you are working from day to day.

My job as an EA
As an EA work can be very difficult, working with aggressive students can make it a very stressful and dangerous job. Management can be difficult but not always. Time off can be is great but not choosing your vacation time can be annoying.

great company to work for. there is room to grow and alot of professional development opportunities. You need to find a good school to work at because unfortunately some schools are better than others and some principals make it hard to provide the best support for the students.

flexible because i am a causal worker - hoping to get full-time
it takes long to get a f/t position.
I enjoy my work assisting the students and I work extremely hard to support and make a difference in their school life. I am not sure if that is recognized by management or rarely get seen.

the full time jobs are not visible as a causal worker.

Demanding work environment
Teaching is a demanding job. Class sizes continue to rise and individual student needs increase. Parents are very demanding and critical. More pressure comes from the Board office yearly.

Great supports in place for workers.
I enjoyed working for DDSB. They were a fair and good employer to me during my time with them.

My role was part-time beginning in the morning. I did secretarial tasks, as well as addressed student, parent, and Board concerns while supporting my Head Secretary.

Great if you love to tutor/teach in fast paced environment.
Great place to teach students various subjects and watch them improve in a short amount of time. Must change tutoring style everyday based on the needs of the specific student. Fun, relaxed environment. Would recommend as a summer job.

DDSB Work Environment
expected you to be available Monday to Friday even though the work was not guaranteed. Work schedule varies based on assignment. Some teachers were friendly while most were not very welcoming. Students were often disrespectful.
