Fairbanks North Star Borough School District

Custodian

Industrial level cleaning of schools with a focus on heath and aesthetics of the highest standard. Experience with light, medium, and heavy cleaning tools and techniques, as well as familiarity with strict timetables and inspection standards. daily routines included: bathroom sterilization, vacuuming, surface sanitization, window cleaning, dust removal, etc. During in-service or other breaks in the school year, heavier projects included: refinishing of tile and wood floors, shampooing carpets, painting, top-to-bottom deep cleaning, light plumibng and electrical repair,
landscaping and external beautification, mechanical room inspections (including a basic understanding of the functions contained therein) Snow removal, and any miscellaneous projects specific to each building.

In the time spent with FNSBSD, I performed many other jobs outside of custodial on a temporary basis, usually to fill in for absent workers, help on specialized teams, or to train for potential permanence. Three major roles included:
Driving a snow plow truck to remove parking lots and sidewalks of ice and snow, many times in tight and challenging formations. When finished, gravel was distributed via hopper on truck. Experience with large vehicles and special plowing equipment gained as well as the dynamics of plowing in -50* F and in an efficient manner.
Leading a small (5) team to hand plow entryways and roof awnings clear of snow and ice. This is to include the snow removal from one buildings entire roof, using 12 workers, 8 snow blowers, countless shovels and ice picks in -45*F weather to preserve the bullring from collapse due to immense snow weight. The project took 6 days of 10 hour shifts, and cost quite a bit in favors and equipment to complete.
Assisting a 2 man roof crew responsible for the troubleshooting and repairing of roof leaks around FNSBSD, as well as communicating and coordination with roofing contractors heavier damage. Basic work included the dismantling and movement of several layers of 8' styrofoam sheets to access a rubber membrane that was then heavily scrubbed and examined closely for pinholes or any other abrasions. Proceeding, the holes were patched and re-tested for water repulsion. This process repeated until the WO was complete, and no problems persisted.
