RAWK Spotlight: Amy Hall and Caitlin Delano

For the month of June, we are shining the RAWK Spotlight on

Amy Hall & Caitlin Delanno

The RAWK Spotlight is a monthly series that celebrates folx who embody and serve the mission of empowering youth voices. Folx in the RAWK Spotlight can be anyone from staff, to volunteers, to Board Members, to community partners. They are chosen by the RAWK staff team by merit of their passion, dedication, and enthusiasm for serving local youth and their community!

 “Ms. Amy Hall is one of the best educators I have ever met. She sets such high expectations for these students, but also gives such large amounts of love to them. The communication with the students is amazing, her heart is huge, her personality is one of a kind, and she cares so much about each and every student (and teacher). She came into this classroom for support for me and she did much more than that. She inspired me and taught me so much. I cannot thank her enough for everything she has done for me and these second graders. “
