Doodle Bugs! Team Tuesday: Issue #6
“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are endless.”
— Mother Teresa
Too often, we underestimate the importance of simple kindnesses — a smile, a warm welcome, or a thoughtful response can mark the difference between a good day and a great day. When team members genuinely value these ‘little things’, families immediately feel at home in our classrooms.
With that said, it is always a pleasure to recognize a new teacher for immediately embracing those subtle doodle differences and making an obvious commitment to building a caring community of learners:
Team Tuesday: Joe’l Ragusa (Clarence center)
- “My child is very happy with her new teacher. Miss Joe’l is so nice, and so dedicated to her classroom.” — Puneet K. (parent of Preity)
Thank you, Joe’l, for making sure that families know they are always invited, always welcome and always appreciated!
*Each week, we’ll highlight one or more team members for their contributions to the doodle community, based on recent feedback from families and co-workers. Want to applaud a colleague?
