IN-SCHOOL SUSPENSION/FAILING GRADE SUPPORT & INVENTORY ASSET MANAGER
Highly organized, detail oriented, efficient and plays well
with others or on my own. I am self-motivated, a problem solver & adapt to
circumstances as they arise. I have worked in the Ankeny High School Media Center for 11 years – interacting w/students & staff – supporting
technology, various computer programs, district policy, Destiny library system, Infinite Campus, solving teenage problems & staff issues. The past year I
transitioned into a new position-In-School Suspension Associate/Failing Grade
Support. I connected and built trust with students that needed something extra
at school. I smoothed the waters with various students and provided a safe encouraging place for them to come and be productive. I am able to stand up and take control of a situation or run a meeting with an agenda that I have created. I am reliable, dependable and able to complete projects to high standard. I am very outgoing and able to step up to the plate and hit a home run.

Work Evaluation - 2016 - received Exceeds/Meets scores on all aspects of job. Overall Evaluator comments "Amy has been a tremendous asset for Ankeny High School in our ISS room. We have used the ISS room in a proactive manner this year. We have assigned struggling students to that room and Amy has done a great job with keeping those students on task and becoming the communication bridge between the students and the teachers. We would not have seen the success that we saw with many of our most at risk students without Amy's work this year."
