Mrs. Kara Zufall has joined the staff at HHCS as a volunteer through AmeriCorps. Mrs. Zufall is working primarily with kindergarteners and kindergarten teacher Mrs. Christa Albright.
“It’s great that we were able to get full time support in kindergarten, especially with the big group we have this year,” said Mrs. Albright. “Mrs. Zufall is the mother of a couple little ones, so she knows just what these kindergarteners need.”
Most of her time will be spent tutoring kindergarteners and providing enrichment activities to small groups of kindergarteners.
“Mrs. Albright is such a fantastic teacher, so it’s a wonderful opportunity to be working with her,” said Mrs. Zufall. “And the kids are amazing!”
As a corpsmember, Mrs. Zufall will also be spending some time with the Pennsylvania Mountain Service Corps, the local initiative of AmeriCorps.
Founded in 1994, AmeriCorps engages thousands of adults in service across the country. The organization focuses on education, the environment and social services. Corpsmembers receive a stipend and tuition credits for their service.
