New Beginnings this Summer

Hello! My name is Maggie Kaufman and I am a rising senior at Franklin Road Academy. I am a softball player and bowler along with being apart of National Honors Society. This summer I am extremely excited to be working at Fannie Battle. Fannie Battle is located in East Nashville provides a home away from home for kids during the day time. Fannie Battle’s mission is to provide accessible and affordable high-quality child care and empower families to reach their fullest potential. Fannie Battle has amazing teachers and caregivers for children from infant to age twelve throughout the summer with multiple activities, working on expression regarding emotions, and field trips. I am most excited about spending time with the children and doing different activities with them. Although I am slightly nervous on helping children express emotions, I hope for a completely new view on life and experiences throughout the summer. Being a Turner Fellow is truly and honor to be able to learn outside of academics and live fully in my experiences. I am excited to have the chance to show love and compassion to new faces during this summer and receive this love from the Fannie Battle organization through all circumstances.

I have cried many, many times about having to leave Fannie Battle. I will […]
  • Mixed Emotions
