Meet Emily Balash: November Employee of the Month

With a new month, brings a new reason to celebrate! Miss Emily Balash is a Teacher Assistant at our East Amherst, NY location. If you asked her fellow teachers they’d tell you all about her contagious spunk and energy. She’s an instant ray of sunshine.


Miss Emily has spent time in classrooms of all age groups, most recently spending her days with preschoolers . No matter the classroom, Miss Emily actively cultivates and nurtures positive relationships with all the children in her care. We love the way that she is able to lead a classroom, setting expectations in a playful, fun, and respectful way. Her steady demeanor and her unending patience creates a happy and healthy classroom environment.


Miss Emily is a hard worker and a team player. She regularly uses the center’s ZONO cabinet to ensure toys and supplies from all classrooms are thoroughly sanitized. Emily is also often the one washing a load of teacher smocks at the end of the day, making sure her team is ready for the next morning. She tackles each day with contagious positivity, dependability and flexibility – assets that make Emily a vital part of the East Amherst team.
