Extended Care Staff
At Saint Andrew's since 2018
I have worked in the Extended Care at Saint Andrew’s since 2018 and continue to find it to be a gratifying experience. Being able to protect the children, while allowing them to grow in a social and playful environment, is something that I am proud to be a part of.
Perhaps one of my most rewarding moments was watching one young student continue to try to make his first hoop on the basketball court. For days, he kept shooting and shooting but missing. One evening as I was walking to my car to travel home, his dad stopped his vehicle. The back window rolled down and the student exclaimed, “Mr. Jimmy! I just made my first hoop!” That was immensely gratifying.
