According to the US Department of Labor, Labor Day is “dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country”.
I thought I’d take this opportunity to celebrate those that work at ESNG, as I know that their work contributes to the well-being of our community every day. We have 350 employees from the administrative offices in Atlanta and Winder that handle payroll, accounting, development, and programming to center managers, assistant center managers, teachers, FSAs, mental health specialists, education disabilities specialists and nutrition techs at our 12 child development centers and pediatric therapists and support staff at our early intervention program.
This work they do every single day has a purpose.
- Jef recruits educated and trained teachers, FSAs, and support staff.
- Tinu manages a busy child development center, enrolls children, and makes sure they live, learn, and play happily.
- Cristina guides children with speech and language delays, giving them the skills and confidence to thrive.
- Tara not only teaches her little ones, she also makes sure they are developing on schedule.
- Mikeshia makes sure children have nutritious and healthy foods in their classrooms.
- Erica gives low-income children with learning disabilities one-on-one help and strategies to become successful.
- JanMarie gives children with autism and their parents the tools to communicate.
- Freddie makes sure children have their immunizations and are healthy, and that their parents have the best resources to become self-sufficient.
While we are cooking out at a pool party this weekend, be sure to thank the teachers, therapists and support staff that keep these programs benefiting the lives of children and families in Atlanta and North Georgia!
