• "My favorite part of my job is knowing that I am helping people in ways that affect their daily lives in a positive way. I enjoy all of the personal interactions I have with people, and the ability to help them keep their homes heated and electric on during times in their lives when it was needed the most."

  • “I like that this is an environment where parents and families are seen and heard. It is an environment that I feel safe advocating for myself in as a Head Start teacher and a Head Start employee. I like that Head Start is always trying to be as equitable as possible in all aspects. I’ve seen a lot of big positive changes since I’ve been here and am so excited to see where BI-CAP brings me!”

  • “My favorite part of the job is working alongside a smaller group of students and staff who all keep me motivated and inspired. I can utilize my creativity to assist the youth in their hardships and successes.”

  • “I love my kids. I love teaching. The best parts of my day are the times I get to connect with the kids, 1:1 and be silly or have those “ah-ha” learning moments. I love working with adults who sing, who encourage creativity, who play and work hard and who relate to the community that we serve. We work in service and we do this because it is what we love. The work is not always easy, but it is life changing.”

  • "The children and my amazing work family motivate me. I have learned a lot of great things about the families; I feel like they have become a part of my life. Everybody gets along (at work) and makes you feel like you are a part of the team. My work family is very important to me."

  • "If I had to choose 3 words to describe BI-CAP they would be…Passion, for helping others…..Professionalism….and lastly…Dedication. The fact that I still have a well-paid job with benefits while so many others have lost theirs during the pandemic is just one of the reasons that motivates me to get up and go to work each day. I am grateful for all the sacrifices and efforts that BI-CAP has made to keep their doors open and their workers employed."
