CHES - A Special Place

I'm often asked, "How do you like working at Church Hill Elementary School?" Many times I simply answer with, "I love it...the students, faculty, and staff are wonderful!" And then I smile.....but, it is hard to contain the joy I feel as I think about how I would like to answer this question. I want to say that I am quite sure that I am surrounded with some of the most talented teachers in the district; in the state; in the entire United States! I want to say that our instructional assistants are the most caring, hard working, special group of people that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I want to share with them how supportive you all are of each other, and that I regularly see acts of kindness whenever one of you is hurting or in need of support from your work family. I want to tell them that our cafeteria staff provides our school with the best meals possible and that they care deeply about our students. I want to brag that our nurse works diligently to keep everyone healthy and goes above and beyond to reach out to our students' parents. I want to share that our custodians come to work early, stay late, and take pride in keeping our school clean and safe. I want to say all of these things and so much more. I will continue to answer with a smile and simply say, "I love being at CHES." But, there is nothing more rewarding and wonderful than coming to work each day knowing how blessed I am to work at CHES - a truly special place.
