What students have to say about Beanstalk Academy 1
Hi my name is Caroline Nelley and I work in beanstalks academy. I am very helpful when working with the kids and the teachers. I'm great at teamwork. I try to make the kids feel special. Some of the things I do in the classroom are: I help the teacher set up the breakfast, I set up the classroom in the morning and then I help get ready for circle time. I also help them get ready for arts and crafts and we also do centers. Some of the centers are the kitchen area, the library area , the block area and table toys. We do dance parties to help the kids get tired before lunch. After lunch I get them ready for their nap time. After nap time we go back to Mrs. Ramos. The things I like most about the little kids are they are so cute together and I love when they put the little bins on the head acting like it's a hat and it's so cute. I love the little kids.

Some of my responsibilities at beanstalk academy are washing students' hands, making sure the tables are clean, and communicating with my teachers when I am having a problem with one of the students. Some of my other responsibilities are making sure the kids are staying safe and they’re playing nice with each other. I also take the cups out and pour some milk in them and I also take the food and put them on the plate. .I take out the cots, get the blankets and make sure that the kids get in for their nap. What I like about working at beanstalk is I love working with kids I also love interacting with the kids. I would recommend it because it’s a great experience even if you just do it for volunteer work and you could add it to your resume which is pretty cool. But that’s not the only reason why I recommend it because If your passion is working with kids, I think you should do it. You’ll have a lot of fun. The kids are super funny and super cute. They just love you as their teacher.
