It's more than just doing business...
Linda Morrison, LMS Business Associate
As I sit here at my desk stuffing envelopes, I have to smile. When I came to LMS a year ago as a part-time business assistant, I didn't know what I was in for. After working here a few months I was pleasantly surprised.
The idea of working in a school was intriguing, and working at LMS has been a great experience. It is a pleasure coming to work every day. The little, green house is a great place and my house mates and co-workers are very interesting, fun and funny - every day flies by.
I think the part I like best is being able to participate in activities with the children. In my first few months, I went on a field trip to Cradles to Crayons. This was one of my favorites, it really had an impact on me. So much, that my son and I have volunteered there several times since.
I was also lucky enough to be a chaperone on a field trip with the kindergarten children to the Museum of Science to visit the planetarium. The field trip was to help them get ready for the Planet Play - and that was awesome. I saw the play in their dress rehearsal and they did a really good job. Then I went to see the performance when their parents were watching - and boy, do they put on a show! It was wonderful.
But one of the things that I love the most is reading to the toddlers. There is nothing better than getting the attention of a room full of toddlers interested in reading books. Now I won't say that they sit there like angels, but they are a ton of fun to hang out with. And now when I walk through the playground and they are outside playing, I get the biggest waves and smiles and it just brightens my day.
So am I glad that I came to LMS? You bet I am.
