January 2020 Staff Spotlight Award Winner - Kids Only IV - Teacher Assistant
Ms. Bea was one of the first ever Kids Only employees - she was one of the first employees to join Kids Only at our first center in 1998. After taking a short break, she brought her loving and caring soul back to the Kids Only family at our fourth location in Kingsville. We are so happy that she has chosen to join us again and volunteer her talents to help us in our goal of high quality early childhood education.
Bea was chosen for this award because of her decades-long dedication to our cause, her relentlessly happy demeanor, her willingness to go wherever she is needed in the best interests of our center and our children, and so much more. The children love Ms. Bea, and she is always happy and smiling when she is with her kids. She is also highly creative and is always sharing ideas and doing things to make the center look happy and cheerful.
We are incredibly grateful to have Ms. Bea back on our team. She is an incredibly valuable team member, and we hope she stays with us for years to come.
