Why I Serve...

Gaye Buchanan teaches our 4-year-old Wee Explorers Preschool class.

I serve in Wee Explorers because working with children makes me happy. I was already volunteering on Wednesdays with children at the church in first through fifth grades and enjoying it. I saw the Wee Explorers job advertised in the Sylva Herald and felt instantly that God had led me to it. I wanted something part-time and I love children so it was a perfect fit.
I love the age group (4 yrs) because they are small enough to be hilarious and old enough to teach. I left 2 hours early today for a funeral and they all had to hug me goodbye before I could leave! My grandchildren all live away from here so it also fills a void in my life.
