Diverse Socioeconomic Population

The work for the most part is fun. You do your job and are left alone to do it . Breaks are recess and lunch. Most teachers don't know how to "use" their EA's. Some of the jobs are one-on-one, other's you are assigned to a classroom and float around the room working with kids who need the help. You are not required to attend staff meetings, but we do, because most or all of the information does not concern EA's. If it pertains to us the teacher will fill you in in the morning. Social life can make or break a school,as can the principal. Your lucky to get a good social comity that pans a lot of events,get good turnouts and have fun.

Great place to work

I worked as a supply teacher for six years in various schools under various management and staff. I had no problem at all. I wanted full-time work and could not get it so I moved on.

Challenging and rewarding work

The work load has a day to day variety of tasks and is challenging. The people where I work are friendly and embody a team spirit work ethic. The benefits are great too.

Fun place to work as you are always meeting new people

Unfortunately, it is very hard to get full-time job within the board. You need to spend many years networking and meeting other board principals and staff members with the hope to get hired full-time and not just a casual staff employee. Every school is different culture so best to be very adaptable! HR testing is archaic as they expect you to have things memorized that are used only in the school system so difficult to new board applications.

Fun facility to work at

Min. wage, expected to work over hours given and at times can be placed to fill in to help teachers. Outnumbered to supervise students, which can be unsafe to students/staff.
