At Yellow Brick Road, we know that our teachers are hard-working professionals! They come in each day ready to nurture and teach their students with their well-planned lessons and exciting activities! We took a few weekends within the last month to give back to our teachers and show them how much we appreciate all that they do for their students and families!
We had a winter party for our teachers in our Nebraska and Minnesota locations that revolved around what interested our teachers! Our teachers are constantly looking for their next theme to teach about based on their students’ interests and this time, we turned the tables on them!
We love seeing, what we call, our YBR Family get together and bond as a whole team! We give our teachers different opportunities to collaborate with teachers from our other local locations through our Facebook Group, all-staff meetings, and our project management tool. Our winter party was a great way to allow our teachers to meet in person and discuss their shared passion of Early Childhood Education in a new environment!
We started our night in Minnesota with dinner prepared by Green Mill. As our teachers ate their dinner our CEO, Jessica Johnsen, and our COO, Kylie Schrader, gave speeches telling our staff how thankful we are to have each of them! They recognized their hard work, amazing lesson plans, and their consistent display of our core values!
Everyone came together and took group pictures together in front of our Yellow Brick Photo Wall!
As the night came to a close, we played a game where teacher’s names were drawn from a basket and they were able to come up to the Bricky Board and chance their luck to win fun prizes!
Everyone had a great night coming together as #TeamYBR and we are already looking forward to our winter party next year!
