My First Staff Development Meeting with ASA & Teen University

I could use the word "excited" to describe how I feel about starting my new endeavor; however, that would be a complete understatement. Beginning as a Teen University Coordinator assistant through the AmeriCorps program is going to be much more than just a job for me. I already feel an incredible bond between myself and my co-workers. When I got to my first staff development meeting here, there was a lime green crayola box with hand sanitizer and kleenex inside; along with a cardboard note that said "WELCOME TO THE TEAM :)." It was at that point when I realized, "Hey, this isn't a job, it's a family." Everyone is making me feel comfortable and right at home; a little sister of sorts.

I look forward to working with Terrance and Katrina. Oh and everyone else as well. (Everyone keeps telling me that I'm going to have to computer train I'm prepared.)
