Our September Coach of the Month is . . . Coach Shellene (Coach S)! Coach S. is a first-year AmeriCorps program coordinator at Doull Elementary School in Denver, CO who fully embraces the mission and values of Playworks. Coach S. has already made a huge impact on her school community and has only been there for a month.

During the month of September, Coach S. has worked hard to create an inclusive environment on the playground and around her school.

When Coach S. heard that her school was having an event at a local rollerblading rink one evening she jumped at the opportunity to attend. She knows that making a connection with students and staff outside of the school day is important in order to make a lasting impact on the community she is serving. Now that she has made connections outside of school with parents, students, and staff, her program continues to grow in strength and positivity. In addition to attending school events, she has also done a fantastic job at recruiting her school staff to attend Playworks events.

Now that she has made connections outside of school with parents, students, and staff, her program continues to grow in strength and positivity. In addition to attending school events, she has also done a fantastic job at recruiting her school staff to attend Playworks events.

Coach S. has shown through her dedication and desire to create an inclusive environment that she is committed to the Playworks Colorado movement. With her positive attitude and amazing personality, we are confident that Coach S. will continue to be an amazing role model for her students and school community.

THANK YOU, COACH SHELLENE FOR BRINGING SAFE AND HEALTHY PLAY TO DOULL EVERY DAY!
