Hi, my name is Janel Reid and I am approaching the end of my last year of graduate school with Relay Graduate School of Education. I am a kindergarten teacher’s fellow at Harlem Children’s Zone-Promise Academy. I enjoy exploring, traveling, cooking, painting, and spending quality time with my family.
My name is Francesca Heflin and I am a Nashville native. I graduated from John Overton High School then matriculated to Grambling State University in Grambling, Louisiana, where I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Paralegal Studies. Since a young age, I have volunteered or worked with children in some capacity, from babysitting to working in childcare.
Dear Relay Community,
I grew up during a time where people always said “it takes a village to raise a child”, and I believe that. My grandmother always told me that if I’m not part of the solution, then I’m part of the problem. I see so many children hurting in my community and I know I can’t save them all, but if I can just save one, then I have to try. Too often I see many people go to school, become educated, and leave their communities.
