“I started working here in 2018 as a counselor with the School Age Child Care program. I started at Terrill Middle School and then worked at Coles Elementary School. I also helped out with the Vacation Fun Days. When I came back to work (following the Y’s closure due to COVID-19), there was a spot open in child care and I’m now working as a teacher’s assistant in Ms. Beth’s kindergarten class. I’m actually going to school to be an elementary school teacher. This age is really cute. I really like working with the younger kids. I used to think I wanted to teach third or fourth grade, but this has shown me that I like working with the younger kids. Every day, I enjoy going to work. They are just fun to be around, and when you’re able to help them, it’s a good feeling. I’ve also become really good friends with my co-workers. Everyone here is so nice. This summer, I’m looking forward to working with the Little Sprouts camp for 3 to 5 year olds. I previously worked at the Y’s camp for school aged children. I’m excited to work with Nora and have a hand in planning the daily activities. We’re planning to have a lot of fun, while incorporating learning in our program.”
