Meet Amanda Flatley: May Employee of the Month

Happy National Teacher Appreciation Week! Each year, the nation-wide celebration falls on the first full week of May. At Doodle Bugs! we got a head start on the week-long observation, and celebrated all last week! We look forward to this week every year, it makes our hearts so happy to see all the gratitude in our centers – our teachers give so much everyday and we love seeing them feel so special!

Now that we’re feeling extra *mushy* about the teachers in our lives – let’s talk about Miss Amanda Flatley.

There are so many reasons why Amanda is deserving of our Employee of the Month recognition. Over the past five years we have seen her grow from Teacher Assistant to Center Assistant, a role vital to the successful operation of the entire center – children, parents and teachers!

Amanda helps to run a flawless operation at our Cheektowaga, NY center, putting the needs of the children, families and staff above all else. Each morning she opens the center with a smile on her face and maintains a high level of kindness and professionalism in every interaction. Her communication shows genuine interest with each family and faculty member and that sets such a wonderful tone for the day.

Her colleagues are some of her biggest fans. They rave about her kindness, team spirit and ability to brighten any day. Amanda’s commitment to excellence is impressive and we feel so fortunate to have her on our team!

Last week, the Cheektowaga center surprised her with a pretty awesome welcome – complete with congratulations signs, cheers and hugs.
