AmeriCorps Appreciation Week

  1. Updates

Hello, everyone! Over the next few weeks, we will be highlighting our current AmeriCorps members. Each week you will have the chance to meet two of our amazing coaches from the Minnesota region.


Coach Chloe

Coach Chloe is a second year AmeriCorps member this year. She has been serving in our flex role, supporting all the coaches across the five different schools we are currently serving. Chloe has been working hard all year to pass along the kindness to the schools we serve. We are thankful everyday for Chloe’s willingness to help not only the students she serves but also her fellow corps members as well. Keep up the great work Coach Chloe!

 


Coach Rob

Coach Rob is a rare third year AmeriCorps member who has been an integral part of Pinewood Elementary for the last two years of his service. He is a leader among his staff and students when it comes to play. Coach Rob is a great example to his community and school and is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure each student feels safe and included when out at recess. He always emphasizes the benefits of play with his students and it shows when you are part of a Pinewood recess. Good job Coach Rob!
