Rhonda Dotson's Kindergarten Class

The JA Classroom of the Week is Rhonda Dotson’s Kindergarten class at McNeill Elementary School. Her class was led by JA Volunteer Jennifer Maupin who is a Customer Service Representative at American Bank & Trust. The Kindergarten Junior Achievement program is titled “JA Ourselves” and it focuses on using 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. Jennifer’s favorite part of volunteering for JA is seeing how attentive and excited the students are. She also said, “I love being a part of Junior Achievement, it gives me a chance to make a small difference in our youth and future leaders of our community.”
