I am 6 feet tall and weight approximately 93kg, most describe me as having a solid build. I have “salt and pepper” hair (which my friends always remind me of), blue eyes and a fair complexion. I have freckles as I spend as much time outside as possible.
As a person I would describe myself as an organised, self-motivated and trusting person. I love to makes others around me laugh and enjoy seeing others smile. As an Assistant Principal of a primary school I often find myself faced with new and challenging situations where I need to think things through thoroughly to ensure all aspects are considered. I love to play sport and participate in any type of physical activity. I try to give new things a go as often as possible, I love learning new things. I come from a very sporting family, my uncle played AFL football for the Hawthorn Hawks. I have a passion for travelling and have lived in the United Kingdom for two year in the early 2000’s. I have visited many Asian countries and love spending time immersing myself in the culture of other nations. Part of my job has been to organise a study tour for students to travel to China and visit our sister school in Changzhou, an experience I look forward to each year. I love to cook and try new recipes as often as possible. I attempt many new recipes each week but love to make Bolognese. Personally I would like to be more creative in how I tackle things. Sometimes I can only see one solution and try to achieve it
I wish to apply for the position of Assistant Principal at South Florence High School. I am writing you this cover letter today because this is a position I feel ready to take on; and I would wholeheartedly like to express my interest in becoming an Assistant Principal within our school district.
I think ok, what makes me the person I am today I think of all the hardships and obstacles I have been through in my life. Even though I have been through a great ordeal it has caused me to become a stronger person, the obstacles I have faced throughout my life have given me motivation, and taught me reliablility, and responsibility. When asked about my personality, I also think of the activities that I love to do as well as my actions during my school career, in my free time I like to organize, read, help people, as well as hang out with my friends. When it comes to my school work I am very conscientious, diligent, and ambitious. If I get even a C on a test or in a class I get upset with myself and think what I could’ve done differently to receive a better grade. In my free time back home I used to babysit and tutor young children and it made me feel so good about myself because I made a difference in their life and helped them excel in the classroom. So if I could describe my personality, I would say that I am a motivated, reliable, responsible, organized, fun, intelligent, ambitious, loving and caring
Based on my experience in the classroom and my educational background, I want to pursue a certification as a K-12 administrator because I want to help and work with a larger population of students. My desire to enhance the culture and community in a school building has come from working with three amazing, passionate, and dedicated administrators (one principal and two vice principals) in my school building. Their drive to positively influence the lives of students, collaborate with parents, and enhance the teaching styles of all the faculty members in the building, has motivated me to want to do the same. A new challenge is presented every day in a school building, and I want to be part of an administrative team that will successfully work together to overcome each and every obstacle in order to better the educational experience of students.
My personality is quite similar to who I am when describing myself. I am also a person who values other people and being surrounded by others. I am the one who makes tries to lighten the mood during a heavy or deep situation. I also tend to always put others before myself because I strive to help others find their happiness. I am definitely a fun and outgoing person. I love putting a smile on others’ faces and I love to laugh on a daily basis. Additionally, I am also quite serious, responsible, and well organized. Overall, I would say that I have a “go-getter” attitude/personality, but I am quite the lively person as well.
From the start I was independent. I love to solve things individually and having my own special experiences. I am also very outgoing. I love meeting new people,getting to learn new things through other people and discovering and hearing ideas I’ve never heard before. I am also very adventurous. I love to try new things and learning something new. Also, if you ask any of my close friends or family they know I am very ambitious, charismatic, and compassionate. When I have a goal I make it my duty to reach it. I have a very special personality. I
My personality is defined as “Guardian” which fits my personality perfectly. Guardians are practical and down-to-earth, but they know how to have funs with their friends. They take their duties seriously, are hard workers and are dependable and trustworthy. They are most comfortable when life is structured (Keirsey, n.d.). I am a loyal friend who like to have fun, but follow the rules. My friends have said I am their “voice of reason”. I enjoy socializing with my close group of friends, but I am cautious when meeting new people. I enjoy watching sports, probably because there are defined sets of rule which allow for a fair turn for each team. I do not like when plans change suddenly. I am a planner and when things change I have to alter my plans.
I likes to encourage, support and make people feel appreciated at all times. I am the type of person who likes to point out the strengths in other people and likes to help them improve on their weaknesses. I am the type of person who is loyal but who also expects loyalty in return. I am the type of person who tries to find a correct and positive way to approach a tense or uncomfortable situation. I agree with the results because they accurately define my personality type.
I believe I am easy to work with and I work well with others. I work well under pressure too. I have a genuine, positive attitude as well. I am typically a happy person and I strive to be nice to everyone to spread positivity. Additionally, I am very committed and punctual. I strive to work hard and accomplish my tasks punctually. I am the type of person who always has a plan set up for their future, but I can also adapt and accept the changes that life brings. I have a creative side as well; I enjoy reading, writing and art. I use these subjects as inspiration to expand my ideas in and out of the classroom. Instead of always seeing black and white I like to look at different perspectives. I am a very curious person; I love to explore new places, cultures and subjects. I love to learn and I have a very positive attitude toward learning new subjects and concepts. I believe I am a fast learner too. I complete all assignments
In the role of assistant principal, I would strive to build relationships with all stakeholders (students, parents, staff, board of education, and community). In order to build relationships with students, I would have a presence in the school. Welcome students as they come in the school, have conversations with students in the hall and cafeteria, be present at school functions and athletics. Building relations with students is much more than a discipline meeting. Being present at activities and athletics is a great way to engage both parents and the larger community. When discipline meetings do occur, I would reach out to the parents to include them in the conversation.
Ambitious, adventurous, and persistent are words that people use to describe me. I am outgoing, hardworking, and always determined to get things done. My life has been nothing but easy. When I was growing up I went through many hardships my father left me and my mom when I was only two I grew up not really knowing who my father was because he left when I was so young. Growing up all I wanted was somone to call Dad. My mom struggled a lot with being a single mom, she was trying to raise two kids by herself, but she made it and I have to say she raised two pretty good kids, my brother is in the Army and is making his making something out of himself. I have turnd out to be a strong independent woman. My education is taking off I have achieved many things in high school, I have high standards for my educational goals I will not stop until I get the best education that I can have. I feel that Mercyhurst University will get me to where I want to be.
I’m a simple man, dressed normal, act normal, eat normal, and I get normal grades. I have enjoyed the simple things such as my daily carton of milk at school. I am very into taking care of myself except for times I decided to be unhealthy. Relaxing is my joy, because it feels much better than sleeping 12 hours in my opinion. I would act proper at all times when i'm supposed to, because I believe in being professional when i’m not on free time. Being professional is a way everyone should behave, It is classless and rude to not be. I loved books that I can actually understand or relate to such as, comic books, fiction books, fantasy, and childhood biographies. Homework was a cruel torture device for me, because it takes up my time on outside
Please accept this letter and the accompanying materials in application for the Assistant Principal position at Thornton High School. Through my research of your school, I was impressed by its historic track record of success and the current opportunity to help students with the greatest needs. I hope to work alongside your administration team to advocate for teachers, support students, and partner with parents to build and maintain a school culture that encourages students to become intellectually curious, thoughtful, and compassionate citizens. I am highly qualified for the Assistant Principal position and bring a unique set of perspectives, skills, and experiences that include:
I believe I am a person with diverse tastes and experiences, whether in life or at work, that make me a distinctive person. I am a Computer Science Student with a great talent in Cricket. I am an enthusiastic traveler with a profound interest in meteorology. In a period of almost six professional years I feel I am lucky to put on and succeed in different roles. I worked as Business Analyst and COBOL Developer where my primary role was to design and build the application; as Quality Assurance Analyst where I have to break and check the application to find the faults in the design; and as Application Support Analyst to trouble shoot and solve the customer issues.
I am a pretty well rounded individual although not perfect by any means. Throughout my life, I have always tried my best to be friendly to everyone and optimistic in all situations. I don’t think anyone would ever describe me as a critical or aggressive person. I’ve always been willing to give advice and be encouraging to anyone that I felt needed it. I believe that I am a fairly conscientious person in that I have always been careful and diligent when it comes to work and other life choices. I’ve always been organized and usually don’t act on pure impulse alone. I’ve never been described as traditional or conventional. I’ve always been open to new experiences and relish every opportunity that can make me a more well-rounded person. People would also describe me as a fairly intelligent individual with a vivid imagination. My weaknesses, however, would have to include my ability to develop people and team process. I’ve always been encouraging, but I can improve upon my ability to develop people by providing feedback to individuals on their performances and recognizing individual contributions when I am part of a team.
