Please consider me in your search for a Family Program Coordinator.
You seek a creative, independent, self-starter with the ability to work as part of a team. C’est moi. You’re looking for a superb communicator; a professional with an attention to detail who can manage his time who also knows his way around the Microsoft Office and, in my case, knows about Photoshop, Illustrator, WordPress and video editing. Someone who’s worked with kids. That’s me.
My Education Degree from the U of A, led me to over 10 years of teaching kids from Grade Three to Adult in seven different countries. I’ve also worked as a Residential Care Worker for the Prince George Association for Community Living and Thomson Community Services, where I served clients with varying degrees of physical and cognitive challenges.
While overseas, I developed curricula, educational materials and assessments for many different educational programs including the Irish Leaving Certificate, IGCSE and PYP, MYP and Diploma Baccalaureate. Every day was a project management day for me but consider my film of my children’s story, The Apple of Albert’s Eye, created using illustrations of the story by my Grade Seven classes. Or, how about my being team lead on a submission to build a Holocaust Memorial in Ottawa?
When I returned to Canada in 2012, I launched my website jamesmillercreative.com to highlight my creative talents in writing, painting, photography, videography, music and graphic design. My art emphasizes the positive and my Happy Face Series is a good example.
My communications background includes time spent as a Communications Officer for The University of Calgary, a Writer/Editor for various commercial publications, a Marketing Support Specialist and as the Owner/Operator of a direct-mail advertising franchise.
I believe I am an ideal candidate for this position. Accordingly, let me suggest we meet to discuss the contribution I could make to the Kids with Cancer Society in filling the role of Family Program Coordinator
