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

    Pros

    There is a strong emphasis on work life balance. I find the work culture fun and easy going but people work hard knowing the end product is the education of children. Respectful working environment.

    Cons

    Some middle management can be a little hand off.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Edmonton Public Schools part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Once getting hired on as a substitute teacher, I have been working every single day possible. There is enough work that I never have to accept a job opening more than 15 minutes from my home. Nearly every single school I have been to has been very supportive and I find the staff remarkable to work alongside. I also love that as a substitute, you get to leave without making a plan (unlike my previous district in N.B.) It makes for a great work-life balance.

    Cons

    The hiring process did take a while to finalize. From applying to hired (and working) it was about 5 months. I am unsure if they only hire at certain times of the year though, which may be why it was a delayed process.

    IT's a good place to work and your are valued

    Teaching is a tough job and work/life balance is needed.
