Thank You For Going The Extra Mile: Bertha Valladares
Bertha is a wonderful assistant teacher at our Lawrence Y preschool and goes above and beyond for all of our students and their families. She helps to distribute lunches and snacks to our students and has also helped in our school age program when needed. She safely takes the children to their classes at drop off and brings them to their family members at end of day.
Bertha leads fun exercise sessions for the kids and her bilingual skills are a great asset to our program. She has her own son in our preschool and is a very involved parent as well. Her commitment to the Y and her community show in so many ways! She attends classes at night and also sends clothing to Honduras to help the community and family members there in need. Bertha is always smiling and happy to help in any way she can. Congratulations Ms. Bertha and thank you for your passion and hard work!
