TEACHING ASSISTANT – FT – LOCAL PRIMARY SCHOOL – INSPIRING TEAM
I wish to apply for the above position, which was advertised on the oneshift website, 2 February 2015.
I am very interested to find out more about this position as I have a passion for working with children and have learnt that my intrapersonal, interpersonal, musical and movement, skills are a good combination for teaching and assisting children to be motivated, engaged and actively bring out the best in them.
Being an energetic and organised Teacher’s Assistant, I work to the best of my ability at all times. I have a Certificate III in Children’s Services, current blue card and first aid certificate. Also, I have demonstrated qualities of tact by being sensitive and respecting the needs of confidentiality regarding children, parents and teacher information.
I am self-motivated and use my initiative and have demonstrated supporting students who have an Individual Education Plan by working in the ECDP and SEU Units at Talara Primary College by assisting with the specific programs for individual or group work. I have also demonstrated this in classroom settings assisting the children in literacy and numeracy tasks either individually or in a group setting.
I have a number of effective strategies to assist educating students and demonstrated this in my last job by assisting with the planning of the program specifically for two year six classes and taught them unsupervised in groups sizes from three to six students at a time, to assist with improving their level of knowledge and comprehension in different literacy and numeracy skills.
