Do you know a qualified teacher who isn’t currently teaching, but would like to? Send them our way! Each day, HRCE employs hundreds of substitute teachers to support our 50,000 students – and we are always looking for more! Substitute teaching allows you the flexibility to choose where, and how often you work. Full time hours are possible! Subbing is also a great way for new graduates and early career teachers to gain experience in a variety of schools and settings. Please spread the word! More details can be found here. Curious about what subbing could look like? Click on this tweet (right) to hear from a substitute teacher in the HRCE. Sincere thanks to Bennet Thomas for publicly sharing these positive experiences! Remember: job postings go live every Wednesday at www.myhrce.ca/jobs This month, staff from Human Resource Services visited Mount Saint Vincent University to share information with 2019 Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) graduates. Staff met with B.Ed students to go over HRCE’s application and hiring process so they will be ready come graduation time. Thanks to those who attended the non-teaching job fair at J.L. Ilsley on December 4. We are in the process of finalizing a number of offers for casual employment in our ECE, EPA, Excel and Custodian roles as a result of the event. Our Staff 5 Additional Resources Allocated from the Commission on Inclusive Education Each month, look for an overview of the new inclusive education specialists allocated from the Commission on Inclusive Education. In previous reports, the roles of Parent Navigators and Autism Specialists have been explored. What does a School Health Partnership Nurse do? Great question. #ThanksForAsking School Health Partnership Nurses work in partnership with schools, families, students and health care providers to develop and implement school care plans for students who require medical support during school hours. There are now two Registered Nurses who provide this service in the HRCE. Stacy Bulger and Cathy Younker are employees of both the HRCE and the IWK. Their role is to ensure that all students, no matter the diagnosis, can have their medical needs safely met while in school. Nurses help develop care plans and provide training to school staff on how to provide the care the student requires. Examples include, but are not limited to, support for students with Type 1 Diabetes, asthma, feeding tubes, administration of medications and seizures. Nurses collaborate with IWK Clinics, community health partners and families to create the best plan of care for students in school. The service is available to any student who may require support with health care needs during the school day. To access this service, schools make a referral through TIENET.
