One doesn't teach for the glory

The TDSB is notoriously difficult to work for. The best part of any day is working with children. However, the culture of the school board is less than positive and no matter how dedicated the staff, leadership is what matters and can make true lasting changes.

Pros

The kids

Cons

Divisive policies; underfunding; poor planning

Challenging and rewarding work experience.

The culture changes depending on where you work since there are multiple work locations across the city and it would be impossible to provide one description of the culture. It ranges from very helpful and cooperative to uncooperative and less helpful.

Pros

Good pay and challenging work!

Cons

Large board - alot of confusion.

Productive paced environment

a typical day at work involved dealing with elementary children.Staffs and students are amazing. Safe place to work, if you enjoy working with children. I would definitely recommend anyone to work at tdsb.

Teachers and their assistants should be given medals especially in special needs classrooms.

I worked with compassionate, caring and intelligent educators and caregivers while maintaining a happy, healthy workplace. It was difficult sometimes to leave work at work but other than that, it was a pleasant culture overall.

Pros

Spending time with great kids and young adults with special needs

Cons

Can be stressful as when dealing with special needs, you never know what the day is going to bring.

Love it

TDSB is the best place to work. It can be fast paced and stressful sometimes. Management is supportive. You may end up working on your own though you are a part of the team, but if you thrive in this culture, it is a huge positive. You will feel recognised, valued and appreciated for your work

Good experience.

Not a bad place to work. I enjoyed teaching the students. Did not enjoy the office politics which got worse throughout the years. Overall, it was a good experience, the pay was good and the hours were more than expected.

Good Summer Job

A typical day is that you are either cleaning or moving furniture and classrooms. Learned to train and look after junior students and had a tough culture in workplace. Good salary and benefits.
