Grandma Penny

Posted on: 2/22/2019 by Editor

Grandma Penny has been with the Foster Grandparent Program for just over one year. She stated in one of our recent visits that "Being a Foster Grandparent has filled a void I didn't know I had"

She works with multiple grades and Classrooms at Oak Ridge Elementary School. She has stated how she looks forward to working with the students and that it feels good to know that she is needed. She knows the students look up to her and that they too look farward to working with her.

Every one of the teachers Penny works with appreciate her more than Penny could ever know; “Her kindness, caring and most of all empathy and encouragement, make every child in this class want to spend time with her.” – Chris Kosloski
