Chris stepped up and took on my role to help support the developmental preschool and OSS office to cover another staff member’s leave. Due to the early delivery, she just had to jump right into it, and even though it was crazy and challenging, Chris did a great job. Chris is a huge team player and her help and commitment to the office was amazing and so helpful.

I am frequently asking Jenni for help with something; whether it’s HelloID, curriculum integration or getting logins. And she is always kind and gracious! Never once has she told me something wasn’t possible, even if it took a million tries and work arounds. When most people would have given up on a task, she keeps at it, and I am so grateful to her!
