Meet Jillian Rushman: September Employee of the Month

Like clockwork, pumpkin spice lattes, hayrides and “quick weeknight meals” have filled our news feeds – fall is (almost) here! So, grab your latte and snuggle up, we have our first Employee of the Month of  the new school year to introduce you to.

Miss Jillian is a tremendous asset to our school age program in Lancaster, NY. As soon as she began as the Lead Teacher in the classroom, we knew Jillian was determined and passionate about early childhood education. Over the past year, her dedication to excellence in her classroom has been an inspiration. She takes so much pride in preparing her plans according to curriculum, but always exercises her creativity making the lessons something that she knows will capture the attention of the personalities in her classroom.

Since her promotion to Lead Teacher, Jillian has successfully taken on the role of Center Ambassador– a position that is tasked with spreading positive team culture in the workplace. Jillian is also currently pursuing her Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential. We admire her strong desire to grow professionally.

The happiness that Jillian brings to the Lancaster center is contagious. She is always walking around with a smile on her face and embodies the Doodle Bugs! Way in all that she does. Thanks, Jillian, for all the ways that you personify “Happy Teachers!”
