Volunteer Highlight!

Emily Chen is a weekly TAP volunteer at Allan Elementary’s after school program where she assists TAP Teaching Artist Lillie Hollingsworth with a Pre-K class and Senalka McDonald with two 3 – 5th grade classes.

Emily has a great demeanor for working with kids- she’s calm, relaxed and as Lillie says, “is an overall great spirit to have around.”

Senalka comments, “Emily has been doing a great job. She’s great with the kids as far as relating to them. She’s very sweet, the kids miss her when she’s gone. I can always ask for her opinion about the lesson I have planned. She also is very good about just jumping in, and not waiting for direction. A+++!”

Emily is a senior theatre and social work major at UT Austin.
