I love working at MCG because of the positive, productive, and peaceful atmosphere that is created by the students, staff, and families who make up this school community. I enjoy having the opportunity to be a part of the "behind the scenes" work while also having opportunities to interact and build relationships with the teachers, students, and parents. I feel fortunate to work in such a caring environment.
Seeing the students' smiles is just one of the ways I spot joy while at MCG! I also find it very rewarding to observe their growth, not only in their academic learning, but in their independence and their social and emotional learning as well. The staff at MCG does an incredible job of nurturing and fostering these skills in young learners.
Recently, I had a chance to meet a new student when he came into the school with his mom. He brought a dinosaur with him and kept asking if his new classroom would have a book about dinosaurs. Once he started about a week later, I stopped by his classroom and he came right up to me to say hi. I asked if he had been able to find a book about dinosaurs and he said yes with a big smile on his face!
