Why Coach Megan loves working for Playworks?
“I love the sense of accomplishment that I feel at the end of the day, having helped to make the kids’ school day more fun.  I also love to see my kids learning different sports and learning how to play together as a team.”

One of Coach Megan’s favorite moment as a coach:
“One day at our after school program, when there were only a few kids left, Keemani (a 5th grader) and I started a game of volleyball.  It lasted for about 45 minutes, and it was so much fun that I ended up staying late.  It reminded me of being a kid again, and not having a care in the world.”
