rewarding and fulfulling

Teaching is a wonderful opportunity for personal growth and helping children to learn independently and reach their full potential. It allows you to interact with people on a regular basis, making a difference in the lives of those around you.

Working with the young is the best

But education is a political ball... if you can keep that to one side, the tdsb generally does a good job in managing its schools with limited resources. Thank goodness we still have a strong union to keep them accountable! Or else we might still be paid in chickens and eggs!!!

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.

Very stressful place to work, not enough support for teachers in The special education program. However, excellent and supportive administration .

Professional development is encouraged support changing times and technology advancements. There should be more computers in classroom and a computer for every child needing one, especially in these times of information technology advancements.

Friendly environment

My manager was very nice and gave me opportunities to grow. She also tried hard to push progress and to move our team forward. The pay wasn't great though. Some of our team wasn't the most forward thinking.

N/a

Layoffs due to surpluses 2 1/2 Years at one school before entitled to sick pay, or any other pay outside of your regular pay. Not all the schools are offered the same opportunities Some schools do not allot enough funding for students who have LD's More to be said however I believe those are Key points to why I only rated them a 3 star

A work place where things are being reinvented continuously !

I have had many meaningful interactions with colleagues and students which have led to life-long friendships. The only downside to the TDSB is that there is I disconnect between management and the front-line workers, the teachers. Curriculum seems to be dumbed down continuously and standards have been falling.

Great Team

All team members are always open to opinions and suggestions. Work load is balanced just right that you always have work to do, but never sitting idle.

Great workplace environment

The staff in my school would always prioritize giving hours to reliable volunteers and were great people to work with. They'd help with any task as needed and would always be open to give advice or talk during the downtime.

Fun work environment with younger children

The staff I worked with were very supportive, they were quick to handle any concerns I had. My co workers were very team oriented and we cooperated well with each other. The most enjoyable part of the job was spending time with the students in their classrooms and having the opportunity to know them.
