Tribute to Joyce Aliment
For nearly five years, Joyce has devoted her time and energy to Jefferson Elementary second-graders.
Joyce originally became a volunteer to share her love of reading with children. But she does so much more, including helping students learn math strategies and organize their notebooks. She also plays math games and paints faces for pep assemblies.
Joyce is on campus at least twice a week. She makes a lasting impact on students. They love the one-on-one and small-group focus she gives them.
Joyce takes on any challenge, including math, which is not her favorite subject. She takes notes during instruction so she can ensure students are learning correctly.
Joyce encourages her students and gives them confidence. She is eager to make a difference for all.
Joyce, thank you for your dedication to Jefferson Elementary School. We are pleased to honor you as a Mesa Public Schools Volunteer of the Month.
