Doodle Bugs! Team Tuesday: Issue #29

Building a community of happy children, happy parents and happy teachers requires teachers’ commitment to building genuine relationships with children and their families. It is always a pleasure to recognize a teacher who takes advantage of everyday opportunities to ‘take a moment to make a moment’ and succeeds in sustaining meaningful relationships with families.

Team Tuesday: Karen Gibson (Cheektowaga center)

“I wanted to take a minute to compliment Ms. Karen Gibson for the wonderful job she has done with both of my older children.  Ms. Karen’s patient but straight-forward nature worked very well with Eddie and almost immediately, he was at ease in a brand new place.  As Eddie moved on and Caitlyn turned 3, we were thrilled when she was placed in Ms. Karen’s room as well.”

“Connection is so important, and Ms. Karen has it down; she knows how to make a kid feel special even when there are 10 other kids in the room…I guess it’s hard to put in to words, but I just wanted you to know what an asset you have in Ms. Karen. ” — Sara B., parent of Eddie, Cait and Hannah

Thank you, Karen, for touching the lives and hearts of so many families. The doodle community is a better place because you CARE.
