October 2014

What age group(s) do you serve?

Grade School, Middle School, High School

What do you enjoy most about working with the students you serve?

What I enjoy most about working with my students is when I see their excitement when they see me. It only further reinforces that I am making a an impact in their lives and hope to continue having some sort of influence long after their time with Denver Kids.

Describe a student outcome or success that you are most proud of.

A great student outcome I’ve been able to witness is a student who is now a 6th grader do a complete 180 degree turn compared to her 5th grade year. Last year this student despised going to school and completing her class work. Now the student looks forward to going to school and keeping up with her academics and is very involved with after school activities.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

Your students need you just as much as you need them.
