Hello. My name is Sara Wood and I am the Child Care and Fitness Director at the Hornell YMCA. I obtained my Bachelors Degree from Alfred University in Early Childhood/Childhood Education and in Clinical Psychology. I have entertained my passion working with children with six years experience in child care within the YMCA and was a pre school teacher as well. Outside of the YMCA I enjoy spending time with friends and family.
My name is Allison White and I am the site coordinator at the YMCA after school program in the Canisteo-Greenwood School district. I am also a pre school teacher at the Y. I love working with the children and watching them grow!
My name is Nick Kowtun. I work in the after school child care and preschool programs at the YMCA. I currently go to college at Alfred State and am enrolled in classes in the Architecture Department. I love working with the child care department because I enjoy the children and playing games with them.
My name is Michelle Aldrich and I am the Hornell Site Coordinator. I am the lead teacher in our preschool program. I also lead our After School and Summer Child Care programs here at the Hornell YMCA. I love my job here because I get to work and play with the kids all day. They certainly keep me young. I have loved kids since I was young and my parents used to take in foster children until they found good homes. I have great memories of those days. I am married and have three great kids that are in high school. I love my life at work and at home!
My name is Jessie Lieb. I work in the Y-Pre School program, and the Y- After School program. I am currently going to school at GCC for education. In my spare time I love to workout, listen to music, and enjoy spending time with my family.
