I would like to give a SHOUT OUT to Kelly Kaufman, a Teacher 2 at Tijeras Creek YMCA. She is not only loved and respected by the children in the program, but also by the staff. Kelly proves time and time again that she literally can do anything. She works part time at Tijeras Creek but is also a part time Health & Wellness instructor at Mission Viejo Family YMCA and can go non-stop, all day, back and forth to both jobs. She takes the initiative to help develop staff at the site and has played a big part in recently developing a newly promoted staff member at Tijeras Creek. On a drop of a dime, I can depend on her to cover K Plus or help at another site. Kelly can walk into any program with confidence and take charge and run a group with ease. She is very kind, patient and an awesome role model to the children. I am blessed and honored to have Kelly as a TEAM MEMBER and to work with her each and every day. Thanks Kelly!!!
