Hello kind krafters!!
I hope everyone has been having an awesome beginning of summer, if you are on vacation or working for the summer like myself!
This summer I have the privilege to be working with children all summer! Between my summer employment and teaching my own music lessons, I am so lucky to be working with the little ones all summer.
My summer job is working at “Family Services” as the “Kid Power Camp” Co-Coordinator and Instructor. “Family Services” provides assistance as well as counseling to families in need as well as children.
Family Services “Kid Power Camp”
As the “Kid Power” instructor, I get to do crafts, improv activities and many outdoor and nature trails, games and relays! During these camps we enforce no bullying, self esteem building, being kind to the environment as well as others with the kids. Being able to use craft and the outdoors to teach and enforce these ideas with the kids is incredibly inspiring. I love feeling like I am using skills that Kind Krafts promotes everyday! Being able to do this with kids is just so much fun!
“SPEC Nature Trail”
Along with keeping myself busy with with my awesome summer job, I am also teaching private music lessons! Being able to share my passion with young students who share this with me is my favorite thing I have been up to this summer. I am so lucky to have such great students to share music with. When I was younger, having lessons and being able to improve in music was such a big impact on the musician I am today as well as the person I am.

Wanting to be a teacher is a long term goal and dream of mine and having the opportunities this summer to be able to work with kids is so special. I want to be able to give my students opportunities to use the voices they have to better themselves and the community in anyway they feel passionate about.
As much as I hope to inspire the kids I get the pleasure to work with, they inspire me as well! Children are full of bright thoughts and ideas and just really help to remind me to always spread kindness. Working with kids is the coolest.
Hope summer is awesome kind krafters!
