Just wanted to let you know that Steve (or as we know him in kindergarten, Mr. Z) finished today. He did a great job with my kids and they thought he was awesome!! He even said he'd be back next year since he had such a fun time.

Karen Gomez was phenomenal and I hope to work with her again next year, if possible... She taught the children so much and shared a lot with them.

I am extremely pleased with the JA program this year. I like the way the program reviews money with the children, encourages saving money and working together. I was especially impressed with our GE volunteer, Mr. Sato Atsuchi. He came in each day and the children were ecstatic to see him. He brought in extra activities to enhance the JA program.

I truly enjoy working wtih the students. Everyday I went to teach the JA lesson the students really worked at learning as much as they could. I also enjoyed parting with wisdom I have learned over the years to assist these young adults into making their lives more rewarding and less stressful.

My Junior Achievement experiences have been very successful. Fortunately I have had the same volunteer for the past 3 or 4 years. She comes prepared and the students look forward to her time with her. It is a valuable educational experience that I am glad to have.

This has been a wonderful session for me to be teaching the 5th graders at Troy School 18. The timing of this session with what is happening in the world and the importance of STEM initiatives. I am honored to have been able to be a part of Junior Achievement in our school.
