I am hard working and determined and I really believe that this job is the perfect fit for me and a good way to start. All my life I have been around officers whether it's because of my dad Sudbury Firefighter Bob Boyd, or my cousin current State Trooper and former Sudbury Police Officer Ken Hanchett Jr. Surrounded by hard working people has inspired me to follow in their footsteps and make my way through life the way they have theirs. Every thing I do is done at 110%. I wouldn't settle for that to be any other way. One of my best traits is being able to keep calm in pressure situations.I am someone who can always have a level head and not panic or make uninformed decisions. The Citizens Police Academy I went through was a huge factor in my decision to want to pursue this career path. The Academy was run extremely well and I could really picture myself in the situations we were shown. As each week went by, I found myself more and more intrigued by the idea of becoming part of the Police force in any capacity I could. There was one week where I was extremely sick but at the same time really didn't want to miss that weeks class and was able to pick myself up and get to the station because I felt like I had to be there almost like it was already my job. I feel like this is the career I was meant to pursue and I feel like now is the perfect time to start it.
Learned to build relationships with children spanning from Kindergarten to Fifth Grade.
Started off as a high school helper and then progressed to a bigger role.
I have a lot of experience talking with children and helping them through situations they have never dealt with before.
A big part of my job is staying calm and showing kids the right way to handle themselves. If you act calmly and orderly, chances are they will as well because you are the person they are relying on.
I really enjoy helping the kids through their issues and challenges. I think it's an extremely important skill to possess in life, and gave me experience with relaying problems within the program to my superiors efficiently.
I really enjoy working with kids because I know how important it is to have positive role models. My role models all were very hard workers for example my dad and grandfather. You never had to ask them for help more than once and if they were working it was always 110%. I would like to think and have been told by co-workers that I am the same way in the fact that when something needs to be done I always strive to get it done right. My dad likes to tell me that we work hard because we are Boyd's and that's what we've always done. I would like to make sure that is a true statement by fulfilling itmyself. One of the highest compliments in my eyes is being a hard worker no matter the conditions just being able to get things done no matter the circumstances.
One of my favorite parts of being an SED Teacher is how much I enjoy going to work. Every single weekday and every morning and afternoon I get to go in and do something I love. One of my favorite parts is putting a smile on everyone's face whether it's my co-workers or the students, it's always a good way to bring everyone together. I'm at a good point where I've learned how to fit in with the kids and my co-workers and build great relationships with so many different kinds of people. I am a good people person I can understand so many different situations because I've witnessed many of them over the time I've worked at Sudbury Extended Day.
One thing that I've noticed is how good Officer Hutchinson is at his job, he has inspired me to think about pursuing being an SRO position.
He has made hundreds probably thousands of children see how great police officers are, what they can accomplish and how well they are trained to handle certain situations. I think that his role in the schools is so important. He is one of the many reasons I am filling out this application because I want to be that kind of role model. I think this is the perfect opportunity to start down that path.
I worked at Sudbury Summer this past summer and it gave me some valuable experience where I was taken out of my normal teaching element.
We would take our groups on field trips and have to be responsible for a good amount of kids in areas the counselors ourselves had never been to.
I was able to think quick on my feet and make decisive decisions about where we needed to go and plan around the obstacles that came with the territory around us.
I had been previously used to being a teacher and being a counselor is similar in most ways but there were some key differences. For example: I wasn't being called Mr. Boyd, I was using my first name and that changed things a bit. It helped because I think the kids were able to see me as a friend and a leader of their group so I had to be both of those things. It showed me that you can be an authority figure while still being friendly with the children which is important. I found that the children confided in me a little more and it made my conversation skills improve. With a job like dispatching not only do you have to be aware of the elements you and the department face, but also what is happening with the caller. Getting the most information you are able to learn from the caller in a short amount of time is crucial and could save lives.
Sudbury Summer also had a CPR and First Aid class which I took at the Sudbury Police Station. I felt that was extremely beneficial to me to be taught those things by an actual officer who has been through many situations that pertain to First Aid and CPR.
PA announced for little league games in town. It was extremely rewarding to see how happy this made the kids I did that for two seasons. Used my exceptional talking skills to introduce the kids.
I applied to join the citizens police academy because I thought it would help me learn more about a possible career I was interested in. I learned about the police force and it got me interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement. It taught me so much in such a short time and I am extremely glad I applied and I was accepted. Learning about everything that the officers go through was such an interesting experience. I decided to put this under the education category because I honestly believe it taught me so many things. Most importantly though it led me to realize what I wanted to do with my career.
I've been certified for CPR and First Aid and have renewed my certification multiple times. Most recently was the summer of 2019 with Sargeant Hagglund leading the class.
I have completed many of these trainings as I was required to do for my previous employer.
