we have god benefits and a great pension plan. good time off during winter, spring and summer break. paid sick days and 5 special request days off. paid maternity leave too.
none that I have to say. it has been a good experience so far. one prloblem might be the increased number of behaviour kids in the classroom that a teacher has to contend with, without support.
Advice to Management
improve the discipline for behaviour students. empower Teachers to work with these students and put the responsibility back onto parents.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Toronto District School Board (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2015.
There was a written component, choice between 2 questions. Next was the oral French proficiency test. It was the easiest I've had out of 4 boards. Last was the English interview. The English interview was based on classroom management, inclusion, differentiated instruction and evaluation. There is a 30 minute limit for the written part of the interview. I can't say for sure, but I've heard from several people that if you go over the time limit, they won't hire you (time management indicator).
- For the French interview (oral), one question was what is my favourite recipe and describe the steps. Another was, tell me about your favourite trip. Nothing curriculum based at all. Very easy interview. The written question was about growing your understanding/exposure to the francophone culture. 1 of the English questions was, what would you do if a student refuses to follow direction. 1 Answer
