Meet Katerina Walek: December Employee of the Month

In the final month of 2018 (wait, what? How did we get here?), we feel honored to recognize an incredible, talented member of our team. She’s the whole package, guys. A #1 teammate and cheerleader, the most loving teacher, and an innovative, passionate early childhood professional.

Miss Kat is a Lead Preschool Teacher at our Orchard Park, NY location. She is a vital part of the success of the center because she intuitively assumes the role of mentor to many of her fellow teachers, encouraging them to “live the Doodle Bugs! Way”.

When you walk into Miss Kat’s classroom, you can immediately see she’s passionate about what she does. Her room is filled with colors, shapes, artwork and invitations to play and it feels so happy! If you were to join her for circle time, you would experience her contagious excitement for what’s happening in her classroom, or with her children, that day.

Perhaps one of our favorite things about Miss Kat is that she cares for each one of the children as her own; she nourishes them with love and respect, and educates them with kindness and thoughtfulness. She adores them with all of her heart – and we adore her!
