Ms. Alice began her journey at A Kid’s Place as a tutor and after only a few weeks she specialized a program for our 4 year old’s
and began volunteering as a Pre-K volunteer teacher. After 10 years Ms. Alice’s skills and passion continues to grow and serve our children. From teaching our Pre-K students to Summer Camp, and most recently our science lab focusing on serving
our changing demographics. She continues to be an amazing asset and make the adjustments necessary to continue be a beacon of light
and hope to her students through teaching. We recently sat down with Ms. Alice for a “Take 5” interview.
