With a mission to impact the lives of children body, mind, and soul; we had better have some incredible tools to make that possible. We have things like iPads, school supplies, books, and of course a stellar group of volunteers. One of our most prized resources to accomplish our big goal is our staff. They are all different and have strengths in various areas, but all of them love God and love our kids. Today, find out a little more about our fantastic Mr. Tre, the yellow team leader. The yellow team are our youngest students coming in at first and second grade. Tre does an incredible job at introducing them to Tiqvah. Here is a little more information about Mr. Tre in his own words:
1. How did you get started with Tiqvah?
A good friend of mine, Darryl, introduced me to them in the summer of 2017. It's something that I've been wanting to get involved with and also have a program of my own someday.
2. What do you do now for Tiqvah?
I'm the 1st & 2nd grade Team leader
3. What is your favorite part of the Tiqvah day and why?
The start of the day, I believe, because that's when my excitement goes up; when I see all the kids coming into class happy and excited to show off their toy or just tell a story. The stories are pretty silly most the time.
4. What motivates you to keep going on tough days?
It being bigger than me. It's not my feelings that matter much at the end of the day, so remembering what my job stands for and who we do it for.
5. What is one thing you wish people knew about Tiqvah?
That all of our staff genuinely love and care for our kids and the amount of time we spend building relationships with each of them.
6. What is one thing the kids would say if we asked them to tell us about you?
They would say I LOVE the Pittsburgh Steelers!!
