Educational Assistant is a job for compassionate people
Amazing place to work, the people are awesome, and so are the students. The pay is good for the work done, I loved going on field trips, traveling on the bust, going for nature walks, working on math and formulating new techniques to teach a student, I also loved the structure of educational content being delivered, overall it was a very positive experience.

Busy but fun place to work
The school I work at is very busy. There is almost 700 students with 1.5 permanent secretaries. I have to be able to handle the constant interruptions throughout the day and still maintain a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for the students, staff, parents and visitors that come into the Office, as well as complete the responsibilities of my position. It is a very busy role, but I enjoy it very much.

Fun and Rewarding summer experience
I worked here during the summer school math camp program, at an elementary school in Milton. All staff and students were very kind and well mannered, despite spending their vacation in summer school. The teacher I was working with in a grade 6 class was very welcoming and even let me teach some lessons. It was very rewarding and heartwarming at the end of the day knowing that I personally helped some struggling students with the curriculum.

Low pay.
Have been an EA with this specific board for 3 years. The pay is unbelievably low for todays economy living standards. I believe we are one of the lowest paid full time EAs in the province.
Would recommend looking at other boards.

A great place
I´ve been with the school board for 5 years supplying. Supportive and full filling. Most Kindergarten teams are flexible and welcoming to new staff. Classes are easy to adjust to, most ECEs provide supply notes.

Working with students from k-12, each day is different from the school to the classroom you will be working in. Makes for endless learning experiences
Great place to work
Great people who value your input.

Amazing students from k-12, plus the CPP classrooms.

Tough System These Days
I wish I could say my return to teaching after 25 years was amazing, but honestly, it was horrifying to realize where we are at. This isn't necessarily an indictment of Halton Region -- lots of good ppl and good intentions but things are so bad that teachers have no respect or authority. They are now at the bottom and it's so sad.

Great benefits
Co-workers are great. Building is old though so possible relocation in the future out to Milton area. Currently the location is close to all amenities.

Excellent training, top notch benifits and pension plan. I wish i never left. I spent 8 years between 2 schools and both were wonderful. CUPE staff and every other union group treated me with respect.
Pros
Great fair wages

Some conflicting personalities amongst staff

Great Environment & Close to Home
I enjoy working at the Halton District School Board. Every day is a bit different then the next even though the duties of the job are the same.

I like that it is sometimes fast paced & other days are busy just working on one task. Either way, there is always more than enough work to do (which I like because I like being busy).


The environment is very casual & easy going. That's not to say we don't work hard, but the atmosphere is relaxed. All the departments work together so everyone gets along with everyone else.


I personally love working at the Board Office because it is close to home & I can even come home for lunch & never have to worry about rush hour traffic.


The position I hold is an Accounting Clerk / Project Co-coordinator. This is a very fast paced position & you have to be able to multi-task under very little supervision. I have to make sure each clerk has enough work to get them through each day & because we currently have 5 AP clerks, & only 1 of me it can make for some very hectic days some days. But for me, I wouldn't want it any other way.

I love fast paced, multi tasking, organizing, filing etc.

Hard work for no recognition
A good job for those with no skills. Pay is good. Management is generally reasonable. Little to no chance of upward movement unless you know someone in the hiring process.
Pros
Consistent hours
Cons
Dirty job

Great Learning Experience
Halton District Schools are a great place to work they have an inclusive work environment beneficial to staff and students. The hiring process could be a bit more professional when it comes to hiring student supervisors not much prep or training is given
