I was hesitant to take a student on right away in the fall. Starting twenty-three five-year-olds out, seven hours a day, five days a week, seemed enough, but I am a teacher - of the beginners. I am very glad Jessica came to our classroom. She was very helpful, ambitious and wonderful to work with. She will make a terrific teacher some day.
It was wonderful having Kari as a volunteer. She was always smiling and willing to do whatever was asked of her. However, Kari got to know one of the residents well and took it hard when the resident passed away. During this experience it was a pleasure to watch Kari grow and learn from it. Would be a joy to have her back.
Steven has been a huge help in the Mayo Baseball organization. It has been nice having another “coach” around. I know the players appreciated having Steven around. We owe a lot to this young man for all of his time.
We really enjoyed having Ashley around our department. Her enthusiasm and questions about our work helped remind me about why I went into the field I did.
Jessica was such a great help with the children, we enjoyed every day she came. I especially liked having Jessica so much that I have hired her to be a sub for me this summer.
Courtney was a very valuable asset to our site! She built many positive relationships with our members, and was always willing to help out wherever needed. She plans to continue volunteering with us - thank you for having our site listed for your students. This was a wonderful experience.
I so enjoyed Shana’s enthusiasm and willingness to do whatever I ask. I even made it a point to teach her all aspects of daycare from daily diaper routine, bookwork and educational training and she has been awesome! What a joy at the end of a tiring day to have a burst of energy and smile enter your daycare and help carry you thru til closing. It’s also nice talking to someone over age 2 after 9 hours!
Ansley was a great asset to our program! We are now recruiting her to work at our center! We hope she learned as much from us as we did from her!
Jake was my offensive and defensive line coach along with major input in special teams & both offense and defense plays. Jake did everything I asked from him and then some. Jake’s sense of humor really made practice enjoyable for the kids, and his seriousness helped keep me together when I was ready to lose my cool. I would be more than honored to have Jake as my assistant again in any sport. He truly is a great individual.
