BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -
This week’s JA People of Action are Elizabeth Reeb, Kindergarten teacher at Auburn Elementary, and volunteer Tammy Collins, CFO at Auburn Banking Company. The Kindergarten Junior Achievement program is titled “JA Ourselves” which uses storybook characters in read-aloud and hands-on activities to introduce the role people play in an economy. Through engaging, volunteer-led activities, young students learn about individual choices, money, the importance of saving and giving, and the value of work. Ms. Reeb’s favorite thing about JA is, “the engaging, hands-on activities!” She also said, “My students love when Ms. Collins comes for JA! They love getting to share their experiences, learn something new, and have fun while doing it! The program is well-paced, engaging, and so informative. We love it!” Tammy’s favorite thing about JA is, “the interaction with eager young minds!” She also said, “Ms. Reeb has such eager students that are already so confident in their learning!”
