In honor of Afterschool Professionals Week, OAN would like to recognize Joyce Mallow of the Circleville City Schools Extra Mile Program.
Mrs. Mallow is a paraprofessional in our Extra Mile Afterschool Program and has been a staple of our program for the past 6 years. Working with Grades 2-5, she continuously goes above and beyond to assist students academically during out of school hours and has an infectious personality that the students gravitate to. From homework assistance and life lessons to her work as a passionate artist, Mrs. Mallow is tremendous force in our after school family at Circleville City Schools. Mrs. Mallow exemplifies what it means to be a positive force in public education.
One of her students, Cassidy (age 10) says, “Mrs. Mallow is really great and helpful with explaining what our teachers are working with us on. She will sit down with you, point out directions, and takes the extra time to help us out each day.”
Thanks Joyce for all you do to help Ohio’s youth succeed!
