Jennifer Hatley’s 1st grade class

The JA Classroom of the Week is Jennifer Hatley’s 1st grade class at Plano Elementary. Her class was led by JA Volunteer Barbara Kemp who is the Sales Executive at Perfect Promotions. Barbara is a JA Alum and has been a JA volunteer since 1997. 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. Barbara’s favorite part of volunteering for JA is, “seeing the children come alive with a whole new awareness of the world around them.” She also said that her experience with Junior Achievement was, “truly an investment of time well spent.”
