ESL Instructor in Toronto, ON
There was occasional get together.It was really a good time working with the immigrants as an ESL instructor. I had the satisfaction in interacting and helping many people who really were struggling to communicate in English language. It helped me to understand different cultures and life styles.The management gave me full support and encouragement to continue my profession .
Supply Caretaker in Etobicoke, ON
Don't start here if you have expenses The job itself is quite simple and not difficult at all. Co-workers are fine but don't believe what they tell you during the interview process/orientation about what kind of schedule you should expect. Expect to work 20 or so hours a week for many months. They'll keep promoting that you'll get full time hours or close to it but that's not true. Very long and difficult process to get full time employment at this board. If you're young and have no expenses I can see the appeal but for anyone over 25 it's simply not sustainable. No benefits as you start either and 8 days off (including medical issues) and you're gone. Honestly, I regret accepting my offer of employment and would've rather made less and gotten a full time job.
Educational Assistant in Toronto, ON
Supply EA with TCDSBWorking as a supply EA has been a great experience for me so far. As a supply EA with the board you have an opportunity to learn and work with different age groups and classrooms ranging from JK/SK to grade 12. You work alongside a teacher, accommodating to the academic and emotional needs of young children. As a supply you have control of your hours. Whether you choose to work part time or full time.

It is a very stressful and competitive environment. I also find this board is quite discriminative environment.They need to hire more minority people to work at this board.My children go to this school board and not too happy how they run things at this school board.
Facilities in Toronto, ON
Easy, secure work for good payIt's government. Disorganized and inefficient but you're paid decent. People advance with little to no requirements aside from being able to brown nose the right people, so the top can be filled with incompetent people. Lots of wasted money. People are set in their ways of doing things, it's very hard to change. So disorganization and inefficiencies just continues.
