Need Help Saving my Job

Hello everyone. I was wanting to know if you could help me save my job. So I 16 and I work at my High School as a tech helper. But that was last year when we had are old IT manager. Now we got a new IT People/person. They said they don't want me to help. So I was talking to my superintendent and he told me to email him a list of stuff I can do. I need help putting that list together. So doses anyone have any suggestions?

I don't think its that - I think all he wants is for us to help him structure his list properly - a bit like a CV or resume.

That's a great list. I have made some recommendations in red, if you would like to consider them.

There seem to be a few replicated items - think about how you might structure your list so they stand-out a bit better.

Look at how I've substituted some words - it gives a greater structure to what you can do. Don't sell yourself short. Be methodical.

Thanks Golden; I understand now. If you have been doing these things for them in the past I would mention that. Something like. I have been doing these things all along for the past ((xxxx time) and enjoyed the time and I would like to continue.
I presume that a teachers helper is time donated, (no pay). I would think mentioning that you doing these task takes a work load off of the I.T. department so they can address their attention to other needed I.T. duties.
The point.
1. They probably know you can do all those things, a reminder is great idea. Your list.
2. They already know you will do it. Your past work record.
3. Now convincing them that they still need your service to me is the prime objective.

I have 3 hard disks. 1 SSD and 2 regular hard disks. 1 of the three, whenever I try to save something there, it tells me that I do not have permission to save there. I am using an administrator level account, but not THE Administrator account... I'm the only person that uses this box.
