Educational Assistants (EA)

An educational assistant role as part of the school team is multifaceted, requiring adaptability, empathy, and a collaborative approach to support the diverse needs of students within our schools.  Working in collaboration with the teacher and under the general supervision of the principal, educational assistants play a crucial role in supporting the inclusion of students with diverse learning needs by providing a range of services. These services are unique to the school team and students they are working with and could include classroom activities support, educational support, social-emotional support, and in specialized situations supporting students with personal care needs.
