Jocey Franco

Jocey has been volunteering with us since last year and she has become a reliable member of our classroom. She is encouraging and energetic with the kids who adore her, and she is always willing to go above and beyond her required duties. We have come to rely on Jocey to take the initiative when things are getting crazy in the classroom and we never have to ask her to do anything before she is already doing it. She genuinely enjoys working with the kids and we can’t wait to see her succeed in a career with kids in the future.

Jocey comes in for an hour and half each day to interact with the kids and basically be a TA in our classroom. She is always willing to prepare activities, hang up art work, make fresh play dough, and act as a mediator for quarrels that break out amongst the kids. She never hesitates to help when she sees us busy with something and she is always looking for ways to improve on her skills with the kids. We give her opportunities to create activity lessons and present them to the kids, and to read to them during circle time.
