District Client Services Representative (Current Employee) – Whitehorse Mining Branch – 22 June 2016
I am in the office at 8:00 AM, greet my peers then start my computer. I like to check for any voice mails or emails before I get started. Once these have been checked I deal with them accordingly then start my customized software programs. There is always papers that needs to be scanned, filed and sent to other departments. If the guys are in the field I enter their inspections then send out as required depending on the file. Numerous systems are checked for updates throughout the day. Office is kept clean and supplied with materials as needed. Clients are helped either in person or over the phone in a helpful and courteous manner. Most days during the operating season I am in the office by myself, decisions need to be made. Management is helpful but does not know the workload that is generated from this position, systems are old. There is not a lot of opportunity for advancement but overall, I love my job and the people I work with.
Elementary school Principal (Current Employee) – Whitehorse, YT – 19 April 2014
I am an elementary school Principal. I lead by example. I take great pride in my work. I love working with children. I have a great sense of humor and managed to turn the school around in 1 year. With my support, my Grade 7 teacher received the Amgen Science Excellence Award. Only one person in Canada received this award. I am well-liked by the School Council, Parents, Teachers and children. We do well academically and in sport. I believe in educating the whole child.
My parents, teachers and students will be devastated when I leave!
Work with people, (children and adults). We work hard and play hard
A typical day would see me receive eight classes of gym. I learned that a teacher must be patient and attentive to the needs of the students. One must communicate regularly with other teachers. The hardest part of the job requires one to be everywhere all the time. Seeing the students gain confidence was one of the most enjoyable parts of the job.
