Helping kids thrive both in school and in the community. And making sure Community Connections’ everyday operations go smoothly in Hydaburg.
How did she start at CC?
Denise has lived on Prince of Wales for a while, and used to work at Head Start as a teacher. When Head Start lost funding, Denise had to decide where she wanted to go next, to continue working with children.
“I wanted to make more of a difference, so I chose Community Connections.”
She loves the connections she makes with the clients and their families. Some of the clients she works with are children of her former students!
We feature staff as part of our monthly Stellar Staff Spotlight. The spotlight rotates between programs (Children’s Mental Health, Early Learning, and Senior & Disability Services), and between Ketchikan and Prince of Wales, with a focus on recognizing direct service staff.
