Doodle Bugs! Team Tuesday: Issue #232

July 21, 2015

In today’s edition of Team Tuesday, we are pleased to feature Melissa Sims, a member of the toddler teaching team at our Cheektowaga location.

Melissa understands that birthdays are a significant milestone for children and their families alike; as we often say, the only thing better than a doodle day is a doodle birthday! Melissa goes above and beyond in personalizing the birthday experience, taking the time to incorporate the personal interests and preferences of the birthday child.

Thanks, Melissa, for recognizing that excellence is in the details; when you take a moment to make a moment for the birthday boy or girl, you’re making it clear to families that you truly CARE.

In today’s edition of Team Tuesday, we are proud to highlight Kayli and Katie, valued members of the Webster team. 

A happy parent recently called our main office to sing the praises of these lovely ladies — they worked together to help her son make a collection of artwork and mementos that was a heartwarming “welcome home” gift for his dad, who had been out of the county for 3 months.

This touching gesture is such an amazing example of the many ways that teachers can have a positive impact on children and their families.

Thanks for all you do, Kayli and Katie — the doodle community is truly a better place because you CARE. ❤️

In today’s edition of Team Tuesday, we are pleased to recognize several members of the McCandless team, including infant teachers Holly and Melissa, Director Assistant Leah, and Center Director Laura.

 A McCandless mom recently shared a glowing review of the center, noting:

“Laura and Leah are exceptional leaders for the center! My little girl has been attending doodlebugs since January. Dropping her off every day knowing that Miss Holly and Miss Melissa are taking care of her and genuinely loving her makes it a little easier for me to leave my precious baby girl. My husband and I find comfort in the strong leadership at the center and the teachers in the infant classrooms. “

Thank you, Holly, Melissa, Leah, and Laura, for your obvious commitment to building a community of happy children, happy parents, and happy teachers!

In today’s edition of Team Tuesday, we are happy to feature Casey Karger, a preschool teacher at the McCandless location who has been selected as the June 2015 Employee of the Month.

With a natural talent for music and a positive can-do attitude, Casey adds joy to everyone’s doodle day. 

Co-workers and managers appreciate that they can count on Casey to reliably lend a helping hand, with a smile on his face the entire time! 

Children and families equally appreciate their relationships with Casey — he makes a personal connection with every child and prioritizes good, ongoing communication with parents.

Casey has also recently taken on a leadership role as “Farmer Casey” — the center’s resident garden guru! He’s enhancing the educational program by coordinating center-wide efforts for children to plan, plant, and tend to their seedlings.

Many thanks, Casey, for your genuine commitment to building a community of happy children, happy parents, and happy teachers. You are an asset to the doodle team!
