It was a morning filled with lots of cheers, plenty of hugs and even a sidewalk lined with balloons. Everyone at Creeds Elementary School was celebrating the first day of school.

We Are VBSchools

"This is brand new for me. My interest in teaching started with a summer camp I worked at. That really got me volunteering with kids, seeing how they work, how they grow, building relationships with them and having fun. They make you feel young again. I’m still young but it gives you a different perspective on life because they haven’t experienced different things that we all have. That really spurred me to teaching. I want to see that I made a difference…in any kid, just one kid. That’s what I want to see. I’m excited. Nervous, but excited."
