Laura's resume

Dear Parent,

When Evie walked into my classroom, I was told she was extremely shy and would not be able to contribute to my literature class. But after giving her one-on-one attention, encouraging her small victories, and applauding her A+ vocabulary quizzes, she went from C’s to A’s.

And after working two shows without missing a cue, Mauro became my go-to Stage Manager and organized his own crews for the next four productions. He is now attending college and majoring in Engineering. These are just two of the wonderful experiences I have been blessed to share as an educator.

These educational successes are just as easily translated to administrative and business successes. My diverse background in writing, media, and public relations, equip me to handle a multitude of challenges and growth opportunities in your educational establishment. I welcome the opportunity and come equipped with experience to face the challenges in this ever-demanding scholastic world.

I look forward to meeting to discuss what I can bring to your growing educational establishment.

Sincerely,

Ms. Laura A. Amico
