Three teachers help shape young minds

-A A +A

They may live in different communities, have different backgrounds, but Diane Jenkins, Barbara Cruz and Jennifer Moss are united in one purpose; teaching the newest generation of students.

In recognition of these three teachers’ work to accomplish this mission, Little Forest Playschool staff honored its employees during the annual corporation meeting May 15. They each received a plaque and a flower.

“(I’m) just proud to receive that plaque,” Jenkins said. She added she is happy to work with the children, and their parents.

“I was honored,” Cruz said, “very honored. It made me feel good … it was really an honor.”

Moss said, “It was nice. It is always nice to have someone say thank you for a job well done.”

Jenkins started working at the school in the early 1990s. Previously, she worked at the Eight Northern Indian Pueblo Council for the Head Start Program for three years.

Jenkins explained she was invited to Little Forest for an exchange program and while she was at the school, the director asked her if she was interested in a teaching position. Jenkins remembers replying, “why not?”

“I just love working here,” Jenkins said.
