Would not have changed my career experience- enjoyed my years. Allowing opportunities for more personal growth, find that they tend to pick and choose who they want to groom for new positions and managers alter qualifications according to the candidates they want hired.
It’s not easy to work in this field, because of all the many different needs of each individual child. Some children are very interested in learning and with the input of the family makes a big difference, but there are a lot more challenges today. I can’t only blame society, parents are very important in the Education of their children, and we have lots of different cultures and their ways of teaching. Some cultures put 160 %
This job deals with kids who are somewhere on the spectrum. It takes alot of patience and determination to work in this field.
I learnt alot since doing this job. You have to develop the mind set along with deep patience, courage, understanding and empathy towards all. It is great working with the kids.
Teaching ESL class involves lesson planning, designing handouts, implementing PBLA, evaluation learners' abilities in all skills,and keeping learners' records.
The HR department is very problematic. Filled with unskilled people who made it up without proper education. The head of HR is rude and absolutely incompetent. The level of unprofessionalism is astounding. There was no training nor orientation. The salary brackets are based on vague and based on arbitrary and subjective opinions that do NOT match the job posting. The work is extremely rewarding but it does not balance out the somewhat archaic management culture.
A supportive, fun environment. Enjoyed teaching a variety of subjects to the students. Staff teamwork, leadership opportunities and positive parents. As a Grade Two Teacher, I teamed up with the Grade 7 Teacher for “Reading Buddies.” I developed and taught the Recorder Co-Curricular program. Students were excited about their Fable Story displays and their Creative Writing in school yearbook.
I learned that teaching can be one of the toughest jobs and yet one of the most rewarding jobs. The School culture starts from the top town and if there is no support from upper management, it is difficult to do one's job at the utmost proficiency. The culture of the school also needs to be one of spirit and a spirit that is growth minded. Music is one of the areas that needs support and value.
Summer contract at Human resources, was given tasks and proper guidance before being left alone. Not many people work therefore not an interactive place. Wasn't really able to grow skills due to inactive period of school boards
Convenient, manageable tasks, training provided
Inactive work period
A typical day begins with greeting twenty two Grade One students, and ensuring that they are settling into the morning routines and are prepared for learning. The teaching begins shortly thereafter, and the classroom becomes a busy and exciting place of learning. I have been teaching for many years but am still learning on so many levels. The students are curious, inquisitive, genuine and honest, and I consider it a privilege to be a part of their educational journey. Teaching has been a sheer joy for me. The most enjoyable part of my job is actually being with the students and trying to get them to be "the best they can be". I also enjoy the communication and positive interactions with the parents. I am fortunate that I have very positive parent relationships, and that the parents are supportive of the work I do in the classroom.
