Meet Miss Penny: March Employee of the Month

This month, we’re happy to recognize Kitchen Manager, Penny Dewey, from our Brighton, NY center.

Miss Penny does a wonderful job running a clean, organized and efficient kitchen. Each day, she prepares and delivers breakfast, lunch and snack – even special birthday desserts on occasion – for all the children in her center.  But, it’s everything that she does over and above, that really makes her shine. She is the epitome of living the Doodle Bugs! Way.

Penny’s coworkers love that she is the best team player. Her can-do attitude has her ready to happily help out beyond the kitchen. Whether it’s jumping into classroom to offer support or taking out the garbage she helps to ensure our days are smooth.

Penny also makes great connections with children and families. She always engages in good-natured, friendly conversation with every child and parent that makes up the Brighton Center community.
