Program Evaluations

The most important thing I get out of being an Elevator is seeing the trust form and grow. We have an easy relationship. Over the course of our relationship, I have noticed a little more maturity in Amelia's thinking. She is comfortable with me and at ease. I have learned it is a two-way street, I get as much from our visits as Amelia does.

I think the program has been successful for a wide variety of reasons. I've been at Amherst for 17 years, so I already have a strong relationship with many of my co-workers, but being involved with EE has helped us have a stronger connection.  My experience with Aerius at Malden Elementary has felt easy from the beginning. I think I've built a good relationship with him. It feels like I'm helping make a difference to a child. I have really seen his maturity level increase. And, we've gotten very good at throwing a frisbee to each other!

Breanna is a blessing! Smart, beautiful, caring, well-mannered and she can light up a room with her smile. I love everything we do during our visits. We talk, laugh, paint, swing and make crafts. Breanna was a bit shy when we first met but she is building self-confidence and is more comfortable around others. This is one of the best things I have ever done in my life!
