Challenging and rewarding; wonderful relationships
Teacher, Full Time, Grades One to Six (Ancien employé) – Edmonton, AB – 12 août 2019
Children and music are two of my biggest passions in life, and I was fortunate to indulge both of these in my career with Edmonton Public Schools. The most enjoyable aspect of my job was relationships--with my colleagues, parents of my students, and of course, the children themselves. My principal was responsive, flexible and understanding, and my fellow teachers and I supported each other daily, in lunchroom conversations where we shared our personal and professional woes and triumphs. The hardest part of my job was trying to provide meaningful learning experiences for 'regular' students as well as those with behavioural challenges, learning disabilities, and special needs, in the inclusive classroom. I learned tremendously every year, about child development, modes of learning, how to be stern with the group and gentle with the individual, about trauma, kindness, acceptance, and relationships. Teaching is not the sort of occupation a person can leave behind, when it's time to go home for supper! My work with Edmonton Public Schools has truly shaped my identity, and has played a major role in forming the person that I am today.

Great place to work but if you dont get along with a principal it is impossible to get a job..

Loved working here but the principal didn't really like me so I decided to resign and because it was within my 6month probation I can not get another job with them. All thanks to the "review" my principal gave me.

Great place to work, learn and be a part of a team focused on making things better for students. Once you are established, there are many opportunities for career advancement. You get back what you put in. My experiences have been rewarding. - thank you!
