Excuse me, dear readers, while I use this to apply for a job!
My name is Katie. Currently, I am a teacher, working as casual relief (ie emergency/substitute). I enjoy this, but casual teaching is not very stable, and full time teaching eats up your whole life.
You want me for this position because I am enthusiastic, cheerful and highly intelligent. I am good with people, but also good with computers, having grown up around them. I even studied Computer Systems/Software Systems Engineering for a while, before I decided I liked people too much to be an engineer. This means that I know some basic programming and HTML already. I use computers and the internet most days, both personally and professionally. Professionally, I search for teaching ideas, and create learning tasks. When I was teaching full time last year, I became a Lead User for the Ultranet and even ran a Professional Development day for around 20 people. Personally, I have this blog, and an Etsy store. I use email, Facebook and am an active member of several forums.
Prior to teaching, I worked in retail, predominantly selling jewellery at Zamel's Jewellers in Eastland. This means that you know that I can talk to people and help them to figure out what they want. Christmas time especially is pretty high pressure in jewellery, but I always dealt with it with a smile.
Please hire me. I strongly believe that I would be perfect for this job, and it would be perfect for me!
