Volunteer Collaborative Work

Mesa Public Schools

As if I don't have enough to do, I'm also thankful to have been asked to help the K-1 team make literacy and Kindergarten classroom enhancements to further support their school initiatives. As a MPS Community Volunteer, I regularly provide resources, feedback, attend and present at parent meetings, consult and provide Kindergarten classroom redesign support at Guerrero Elementary School in Mesa. Supporting my local neighborhood school is something I am very passionate about and I could not pass up the opportunity to connect with these families and further support these teachers on a volunteer basis.
