I’ve been trying to blitz the branch locations here at CML during the month of February, but the weather hasn’t been cooperating much lately. But for the have dozen or so visits that I have gotten in, I have already learned so much.
One of the biggest impacts that’s apparent whenever I walk through a door, is just how busy our locations are… there never is down time of activity and the higher the buzz, the more energized the staff is. The Homework Help Centers are amazing and with dozens of kids receiving much needed assistance every weekday afternoon, the impact that CML is making will last these kids a lifetime.
I wish I had taken my camera along during my visits last week so I could have captured the activity. And my search on the CML site doesn’t reveal much either. In fact, the only photo I could find was this one from an article in the Columbus Dispatch. NTS: Need to fix that.
Anyway, it’s been a whirlwind these past two weeks and from what I can gather, the constant buzz of activity never slows down – not even for those of us in support functions. In fact I’ve been so busy here in Columbus since I arrived, that I haven’t even had one full day yet with even 2 consecutive hours of just office time. Don’t get wrong, I’m not complaining. Given my druthers, being busy is always better then being bored. but what I am gaining most through my visits is a great appreciation for all our staff in branches do & juggle … oh, so excellently.
