I need your help!!! I am totally overwhelmed!!!
I'm a middle school teacher (Math, Social Studies, Robotics) and need help grading assignments, posting grades, and finding teaching resources.
I'm also working on my PhD in Instructional Leadership and need help finding and summarizing articles for various assignments.
I also need a personal assistant to help organize emails, to do lists, calendars, finances, pay bills, make purchases, make appointments, make calls, and help deal with all the miscellaneous tasks and nonsense that life brings us all.
I believe relationships are the key to success in everything. I value trust, honesty, efficiency, loyalty, dedication, reliability, and promptness. While you will be an employee, the goal is to treat you like a partner once we've gotten to know each other and trust each other. Of course, this takes time. This is why I'm looking for one person, long-term.
I am flexible and honest. I expect the same. If you don't understand something or aren't familiar with a particular application or program, that's ok, but I need to know so I can train you. Therefore, communication is essential. If you're not fluent in English, that's ok. I'm happy to work through that and even help you work on your English.
Here are some of the programs I use and it would help if you were proficient with those. However, if you are not, that's ok as long as you willing to learn. Remember, I'm a teacher :)

I'm relatively new to using virtual assistants so I prefer to start out small and work up from there. I want to make this a profitable and enjoyable relationship for both of us. To that end, I will select the applicant who is willing to work at a low rate initially because it will take a lot of time to build this relationship. As our relationship grows so will your pay. I need to be able to trust you and your judgement to take care of me and in return I will take care of you. If you are looking for something short term, or not willing to let me get to know you and you get to know me, please don't apply. However, if you are looking for a long term mutually beneficial partnership, please introduce yourself! Regardless, thank you for taking the time to review this job and I hope you have a great day!
