Educational Assistant in High Prairie, AB
High Prairie School Division Employment
The staff at HPSD were wonderful to work with. I was welcomed and supported at each school I worked at. I learned how dedicated the teachers are to providing the best education possible to the students there.

Worst place I've ever worked
I have never been so disrespected in my life. Was told I had to "earn my salary" despite working 30 hours extra weekly. Teachers are treated like garbage and EA's are treated worse. Head office only cares about statistics, they don't care about helping students grow. Working for HPSD has turned me off teaching completely. If this is what education is really like, I'm shocked at how corrupt it is

Great summer job
Worked alone most of the time but staff are extremely friendly. Slowed down during the mid summer when the schools are closed and was significantly more relaxed. Hardest part was the training, moved very fast but when you get the hang of it it's easy.

Unfair Evaluation Practices
HPSD used to be the envy of all school divisions, but over the past few years, has started to decline. It's unfair and biased evaluation process pushed me out of a permanent contract. Despite stating at least 2 formal planned evaluations, only 1 formal planned occurred, with 4 unannounced 'walk in' evaluations making up the remainder of the evaluation.

I also got extra for mileage and the number of children picked up on tour.
I truly enjoyed the children that I came into contact with the other staff members were a pleasure to work with. Also the school staff were very helpful.
