Our Employee of the Month is Barbara Herzner from Hilltop School in New Jersey. Barb creates super cool theme-filled weeks that the kids and their parents love. Barbara and her Educator, Jeanette Porsello were the first two employees to return to a classroom during the COVID crisis. They had to come up with innovative ideas to address how to teach the children all while social distancing and making masks fun to wear!
Some of Barb’s themes included detective training, most loved books (introducing them and bringing them to life with cool activities) and heading out to outer space. (Some really cool rockets created in that one!)
She has taken on additional duties to help with state inspectors, keeping Apollo aligned with state mandates. With all that on her plate, she still goes out of her way to accommodate the children and parents that have had special requests.
Barbara, thank you for being such an outstanding employee and teacher!
To show our appreciation for your dedication and hard work – please check your email this week for a special gift card.
“We are fortunate as educators that our job brings new challenges every day. We are blessed to hear children laughing or excitedly asking what we have planned for the day. What other job can you have that brings joy to so many children?” – Barbara Herzner
