Michelle Roberts’ 1st grade class

The JA Classroom of the Week is Michelle Roberts’ 1st grade class at Briarwood Elementary School. Her class was led by JA Volunteer Carrie Jolly Link who is a JA Alum and is an Attorney at Debra L. Broz, Attorney At Law. The 1st grade Junior Achievement program is titled “JA Our Families” and it focuses on activities teaching kids about needs, wants, jobs, tools and skills, and interdependence. Carrie’s favorite part of volunteering for JA is getting to work with the kids and teaching them some of the practical aspects of life that they can use later in life. She also said, “My kids were so cute and eager to learn! You could tell they really enjoyed the activities. This was my first time serving as a JA volunteer and I can’t wait to do it again!”
