Kim CookKim Cook is the Office Assistant for the TR Leger School of Adult, Alternative and Continuing Education's Skills, Training and Employment Preparation Program (STEP). She is based in Almonte, but she helps instructors at all 19 of our campuses. It is not uncommon to hear the constant 'bing’ of her email and ringing of her phone when you are near her office, as many people seek her out for help.

Kim’s role steps outside that of the regular OA job description as it has multiple reporting and data processing requirements with external agencies. Despite this, she helps out willingly, and is supportive and encouraging to staff as she is doing it.  

Kim frequently checks on new instructors to help them fully understand the Employment Ontario system, LBS policies, the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework and registration procedures. Kim also prepares materials for co-workers and even delivers them in person when they are needed immediately. She also helps new managers get acquainted with the unique reporting systems of the program.  

Kim is a dedicated problem-solver and works through every issue with a positive attitude until it is resolved and she has a remarkable ability to multitask. “I don’t know what I would do without Kim,” is a regular phrase among her co-workers.

On top of all of this, Kim always makes time for the learners. She helps with campus spirit days, and helps those studying Office Administration by providing training, support and by listening to all their questions.

When the school's programs closed due to COVID-19, Kim supported staff and helped find the answers to the new questions created by this unprecedented situation.

For her dedication to her work, her thoroughness and her collaborative spirit, the Upper Canada District School Board is proud to honour Kim with a Director’s Award of Merit.
