Attached is my resume for consideration. I believe that my knowledge, education, experience, and skill set uniquely qualify me for this position.   I was the Education Director for AMIKids-Polk, an alternative education program responsible for educating children under court supervision or were placed by Polk County Schools.  Many of these children qualified as special education students.  As the Education Director my duties included conducting intake interviews with the students and their families; creating student schedules; coordinating the standardized student testing procedures; handling student disciples; and supervising and training the educational staff. Under my direction, students not only remained in school, they progressed academically. The school at AMIKids had the highest attendance of the AMIKids schools.   My prior professional experiences included: Social Worker with Ceridian/Military One Source where I provided services and referrals for military service members and their families; Staffing Master with both the Florida Department of Children and Families and Heartland for Children, and Assistant Principal at a school within a level eight program.   While working on my doctoral degree in education at the University of South Florida, I co-taught courses in educational leadership and provided research assistance for professors in the School of Education.   From November 1996 to March 2003, I was Assistant Principal of Sabal Palm School, a school within a high-risk (Level 8), 350-bed juvenile facility that was located in Polk City Florida. A majority of these children were special education students.  As the first generation of school administration I readily accepted the unique opportunity to develop this new school. My seven year tenure as Assistant Principal provided me with a wealth of knowledge and much valued experiences as an educational leader at Sabal Palm School.  There were no major incidents at the school and graduation exercises were held for those students who earned their degrees.   I earned Master Degrees in both Social Work (Virginia Commonwealth University) and Educational Leadership (University of South Florida).  My Doctoral Degree in Educational Leadership was earned from the University of South Florida in May 2010.  I am certified in both Educational Leadership and Social Work in the state of Florida.   I was the supervisor of the Probation Department of the City of Richmond, Va. where I supervised probation officers and student interns in MSW program at Virginia Commonwealth University and the BSW program at Virginia Union University.   I believe that my education, along with my experiences and training as an educational administrator, supervisor, mediator, counselor, program planner, administrator, and researcher uniquely qualify me for this positions.   Jessica.
