I wish to apply for the position of ASP Coordinator at Riverview School as advertised in the August 5th edition of the Rainy River Record. I am a  friendly, caring and clearly dedicated individual who has succeeded in any given environment. I have extensive experience in the field of education and computer technology. I have worked independently and as a member of a team for more than 15 years with the Rainy River District Board of Education. My role as an Education Assistant and an Assistive Technology Administrator coupled with my education has given me ample tools and skills needed to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of an ASP Coordinator. On top of all this is my many years of experience working with children who have special challenges and/or disabilities. I am seeking to expand my work day and since I already work at Riverview School, I would have the advantage of knowing most of the students and parents of the community and  have access to photocopiers, scanners, computers, equipment ,etc,.


Volunteering for community activities and events, portrait drawing  and photo editing are just a couple of interests that I enjoy doing. I set up, took pictures and printed them at a hockey game against NHL Old timers and our Rainy River men a few years ago, as well as designed a graphic for the town of Rainy River which outlined their 5 year improvement plan.
