The teaching staff was excellent
It is a wonderful place to do your teaching practicum.

Great people, great students
It is a great experience joining the YRDSB. I work with one of the best Site Administrators in town, and whenever I need support, they are there for me. Teachers mostly doing their own planning etc, although most of the time teachers know each other because they have been teaching on the same site for a long time. I am still considered a new teacher, so I don't really know other teachers. This is not a problem because most of them are very nice. Just like any other afterschool program, don't expect students to be all attentive when they come into class, but as long as you can catch their attention, they can learn well.
Pros
Easy teaching environment

Management is useless in plant services sofs most of them AMO dont care about anything. Poor moral and no one cares.
Stay away from caretaking and maintenance. Horrible pay no raises not even cost of living.
Benefits are ok not bad

Pension is sub par but it's a pension.

23 dollars an hour is pretty pathic.

Great Job, Low Wage
The casual rate for a DECE is $17.96. That is $3.96 more than minimum wage and you are non stop all day, sometimes missing breaks. You have no benefits, sick days or job security. The chances of advancement are slim unless you get an LTO. If you can afford it, do it, the job is amazing and a lot better than child care, but hopefully you have a second income or you will struggle financially.

Its like Highschool for adults
Temp Staff are treated like they do not exist and there is clear favouritism, even if it is not in the children's best interests. Disorganized and disrespectful coworkers.

Fun work environment
Loved working with the children
Learned CPR/First Aid and basic health and safety

Hours were good - people were friendly and helpful

Hardest part of the job was when the children were homesick.

YRDSB Secretary
Unfortunately being a school secretary does not provide the flexibility you would hope for. The job does not command the respect it deserves and is very low paying considering the demands and 3 times a year lay offs.
Pros
Summers off
Cons
Often asked to complete jobs outside of your job description with no compensation

New and fun experience daily.
As a supply DECE, I assist the teacher in kindergarten classrooms to ensure children are learning and playing safely. Outdoor supervision of children is required daily. The best part of the job is meeting new children everyday and having different experiences in different classrooms.
