Letter of Interest

Katrina Davis-Jones~katdavis21@gmail.com~910-551-9336

It is with great pleasure that I am expressing my interest in applying for the position of Assistant Principal with Chesterfield County Public Schools. I have earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Education; Completed certified, advanced graduate degrees in Instructional Technology and Educational Leadership. With 14 years of teaching experience and 1 ½ years of administrative experience, I am confident that I possess the qualifications your district needs to promote your goals and mission.

The attached resume will highlight that I am currently an Assistant Principal at Harnett Central Middle School in Harnett County, North Carolina. I am an Assistant Principal that supervises a diverse group of staff as well as approximately 1200 students. Being in this role has allowed me to have on-the job experience and to become a well-rounded Instructional Leader, including building my craft of building relationships between parents, students and staff while solving problems to create a win-win situation. I also excel at:

  • Serving as the Site Leader for Summer School Grades 6-8 and K-2.
  • Serving as the School Test Coordinator
  • Managed 25 bus schedules, with responsibility for more than 800 students
  • Actively involved in the interviewing process to select new teacher hires, secretaries, and Para-professionals
  • Responsible for more than 90 staff members, handling contractual, student and curricular issues.
  • Evaluated and assessed teachers performance during observations and walk-throughs

As Assistant Principal, I aspire to support school policies, school culture and educational programs that are beneficial to student learning. I also seek to “train up” teachers through professional development, teamwork and consultations. As an Instructional Leader, experience not only helps one to become knowledgeable of the Common Core Standards but allows one to incorporate best practices in education to meet the need of all learners as well.

My philosophy includes setting high expectations for all students and staff. This will permit students to build confidence, improve behaviors and spend more time on task and their academic learning time will increase.

My beliefs include encouraging all students in spite of social economic backgrounds to become lifelong learners. Doing so, requires educators to take a proactive role to ensure both students and parents value school and appreciate the role it plays for creating a productive workforce beginning in elementary grades.

After reviewing my resume, I welcome the opportunity to meet with you in person to discuss in further detail, how my skills and experience will meet the needs of your school district. I look forward to discussing my qualifications in further detail. Thank you for your consideration.
