I have always enjoyed being around children, so when I read the ad in our church bulletin that there was a position for a foster grandmother needed at CCS, I applied.
I have worked at CCS for four years and like it so much I would work five days instead of the three we are asked to attend.
It is very exciting and fulfilling to know that I am helping students that need a little extra help in Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic.
I would recommend this great Crosslake Community School to everyone.
I worked as a registered nurse for 37 years. My Husband is Tim and "our baby" is a five year old golden retriever. When I saw the ad for Foster Grandparents, I thought that would be a good fit for me.
I have been a Foster Grandmother at CCS for five years. This School is a wonderful place to be. Working with the children can be challenging at times, but mostly a huge blessing in my life! All the staff give their all to these children.
We never had children and through the years I was used to being called "Aunt Mary" and now to be called "Grandma Mary" is music to my ears!
From the time that I was six years old until I retired, I loved school. I either was involved as a student, a parent volunteer, or a teaching assistant.
I became a Foster Grandparent after I retired because I missed being around an education environment and I especially missed the children.
Crosslake Community School is a very good school with great staff, and an asset to our community. I love the kids!
