“A New Year...”


Description from J Yee smart chick: I just got offered an Americorps site coordinator opening, thru Communities in Schools of Washington, at their Kent location (south of Seattle by about 25 miles or so...) - I will be working in an elementary school all year, with students most at risk of dropping out, to help find adult mentors who will meet with them once/week, much like Big Brothers/Big Sisters mentors do w/ children and youth - they use a comprehensive and community oriented approach to working with students and families - I'm very much looking forward to the many opportunities this year offers!

    Thank you, 3K, Lee D and Janet – I’m somewhat nervous, but know that I’ll learn a tremendous amount from everyone that I will be working with this year – the students and their families, the school staff and administrators, my supervisor the director of our program, and my two co-workers (a site supervisor and mentor coordinator) – I’m very glad to have the opportunity to work with kids again in this manner, I had a job similar to it, with a different agency in Seattle, that one ended due to budget difficulties (and the politics unfortunately).

    Sarah, Alice, and Cathy, thank you – and many thanks also to everyone who voted for this one last week, it’s been a very busy few days so far!! I’m tired from commuting so far each day, but wanted to say how much I miss all of you!! I’m learning a lot, still meeting lots of people at the school, and elsewhere – way too much to do, figuring out the basics, such as getting a key to my office, and some furniture – there’s just a computer monitor in my office, no desk, no chair yet… ;)
