RAISE April Employee of the Month
May 13, 2022
Cate - Central Florida Hillel and the Jewish Academy of Orlando library
At Hillel Cate has the important job of getting the ballroom set up for over 200 students for the weekly Shabbat dinner. She also works diligently to keep the common areas of Hillel sparkling, to replenish snacks, to organize the supply closets and take inventory.
At Jewish Academy, Cate works as an art teacher assistant. She prepares materials for the children, helps children with art projects, keeps the art room clean and organized, and other miscellaneous tasks to assist the art teacher.
At Lunch and Learn Cate is an active participant. She always asks questions to further her learning and understanding and often brings a different perspective for all employees to consider.
Cate has shown growth in her ability to give green light cues to others, to use a respectful tone of voice, and to be responsible for her own schedule. Cate has also become independent with transportation as she has learned and gained comfort with using Uber while working on learning how to drive herself.
Cate has become a self-advocate letting Rachel Slavkin know when something is unclear to her or upsetting to her. Working in RAISE has expanded Cate's interests and she has learned that she enjoys working with children.
We are thrilled with the progress Cate has made and continues to make in RAISE!
