Team Tuesdays: Lucia Adams (Penfield Center)
Everyone at the Penfield center agrees – Lucia Adams has a natural talent for teaching toddlers! She creates an inviting, interesting and supportive classroom environment where children love to experiment and explore… and everyone immediately feels at home.
In her comments below, Gregory’s mom, Judy, perfectly describes the ways that Lucia demonstrates her commitment to building a community of happy children, happy parents and happy teachers:
- “Miss Lucia is the very best teacher I have ever had the good fortune to work with.”
- “… Lucia went out of her way to put me at ease, and in my opinion, went above and beyond what was expected…She really took her time, and answered all of my questions.”
- “I always feel like Gregory is in terrific hands when I leave him with her, because she really takes her time to get to know the children in her classroom, and I always get a sense of just how much she cares about each child from her actions.”
- “She always takes the time to answer all of my questions, and I know from the depth of her comments and observations, that she pays attention to my son. I truly feel like she is a partner in my son’s education.”
Center Director, Marissa Lee, shares Judy’s sentiments, commenting that “It is a pleasure having Lucia on our team because she truly inspires the children and other staff members. Families regularly comment on how much they appreciate that she consistently goes above and beyond what is expected of her.”
Thanks, Lucia, for being a terrific team member!
