A wonderful job that has potential for me to grow, learn, and advance in my career field.
Supply Educational Assistant (Current Employee) –  Kitchener, ON9 October 2012
I have not worked many hours with the Waterloo Catholic District School Board. Based on my limited experience I have enjoyed my job. A typical day at work is directed by the delegation of the teacher or principle. I would assist students in their school work. Some students required assistance with toileting. It is my job to ensure the well being of the student and help them to achieve their learning goals. My coworkers have been an outstanding support and have also taught me how to be more effective in my role.
The hardest part of the job is the inconsistent hours and job opportunities.
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with a team to achieve a goal of assisting a student in their education.
Pros
room for advancement and various opportunities, ideal hours for family life, coworkers to collaborate with, an atmosphere to continue in my own learning and improvement.
Cons
supply/casual work does not always provide consistent hours, are required to go to many different locations weekly, it is difficult to establish working relationships.
