    I have been working at Edmonton Public Schools full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    One of the biggest districts in the Public School system in Canada, and the best paying district in Alberta. Once you get a continuous contract it has lots of schools and positions to move within the district. Most teachers/staff/admin seem to genuinely care about the students.

    Cons

    It takes at least 3-6 months to be approved to work in the district, even though we are on a shortage. HR is either extremely inefficient, overworked or lacking people. Large class sizes are an issue district-wide. If you don't have a continuous contract you are not allowed to apply for jobs, you just take your chances in the district. Expectations for teachers are high, and there isn't enough time in the day to do it all.
