Doodle Bugs! Team Tuesday: Issue #6

February 23, 2010

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are endless.”
— Mother Teresa

Too often, we underestimate the importance of simple kindnesses — a smile, a warm welcome, or a thoughtful response can mark the difference between a good day and a great day.  When team members genuinely value these ‘little things’, families immediately feel at home in our classrooms.

With that said, it is always a pleasure to recognize a new teacher for immediately embracing those subtle doodle differences and making an obvious commitment to building a caring community of learners:

Team Tuesday: Joe’l Ragusa (Clarence center)

  • “My child is very happy with her new teacher. Miss Joe’l is so nice, and so dedicated to her classroom.” — Puneet K. (parent of Preity)

Thank you, Joe’l, for making sure that families know they are always invited, always welcome and always appreciated!

*Each week, we’ll highlight one or more team members for their contributions to the doodle community, based on recent feedback from families and co-workers. Want to applaud a colleague? Interesting in recognizing your child’s fabulous teacher? Let us know what you think by emailing  or by commenting on this post – your feedback is important to us!

    I wanted to highlight the efforts of Ms. Cyndy and Ms. Lupe (Cheektowaga Center). Everyday they take the time to encourage and teach each child in classroom #2. I can see that they make every child feel special and applaud the efforts of each child’s milestones.

    Over the past few weeks, they have been teaching and encouraging Logan to walk. They work with him everyday to master his walking skills!

    I can tell by the smile on his face he enjoys his time at Doodle Bugs and he is benefiting from their care. I appreciate their continued efforts in my son’s developments.

      Thanks so much for your kind words about Cyndy and Lupe — they are a terrific team! It’s so nice to hear from happy doodle families — we’ll be sure to share your remarks with the teachers. Thanks again for your support of the doodle community!
