“I started working here in March 2017 and worked in the after care program at several schools, including Evergreen, School One and McGinn. I also have worked at the Y’s Summer Camp and was an assistant to the art teacher. One of my friends who works here told me the Y was hiring. I also had been in the Y’s Adventure Camp when I was younger and Katie (the SACC & Camp Director) was my counselor. When I worked at the schools, I liked playing with the kids. I like the way kids think, each one has their own personality. This year has been different with virtual learning and it’s good that kids can come to the Y and see other kids. The kids here are so funny. Some of the things they talk about are hilarious; they make me laugh constantly, all day long. I really like seeing the kids happy when they get to see their friends and socialize. Somedays, they don’t want to leave and that says a lot – they like being here.”
