Before we take the next few days off, I just wanted to take a little time to say what I’m thankful for:
First off, I’m thankful for Pathways/Senderos. I am personally thankful because it has given me the best job I’ve ever had, by far (and I’ve had a lot of jobs). But I am mostly thankful for Pathways because I see the good the program does for the community and the children it serves. I’ve never been a part of, or even seen, a program quite like this, and I’m extremely proud to be a part of the Pathways/Senderos family.
I’m thankful for our new Directors, Heather and Nick. It is a joy coming to work for them and with them every day. When they took over, it was a seamless transition, and I honestly believe we are stronger than ever as a program.
I’m thankful for all the staff members: Alex, Eyda, and Corlene. Along with Nick and Heather, we all work together as a family and we know we can rely on each other for anything.
I’m thankful for all the volunteers, especially Kathleen, Jackie, Robin, Ralph, Marsha, and all of the UConn UST students. They give their time and effort to help our youngsters and add another positive element to our parallel family structure at the Center.
I’m thankful for the guidance and leadership of the Board of Directors.
I’m thankful for our new building and our wonderful new landlord Joe Barile.
I’m thankful for YOU and all of our amazing supporters. If you have donated money, gifts, your time, or you have just sent us positive thoughts and vibes, we appreciate you.
Mostly, I’m thankful for the kids. They make every day interesting and all of our hard work worthwhile. Their perseverance, positivity, and desire to succeed inspires me (and the rest of the staff/volunteers) on a daily basis.
Happy Thanksgiving form the Pathways/Senderos family!!!
