New Faces: Connie BlaumJuly 9, 2012 8:25 pm
Hi! My name is Connie Blaum, and I have been volunteering at the JBFC for two months and counting. I graduated from Louisiana State University in May of 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications. During college, apart from being a full time student, I was a member of the Chi Omega Sorority, an executive member of the Organization for Communication Studies, and also held a part-time job at a local daycare in Baton Rouge. Working at the daycare made me realize my love for children, so after graduation I moved to New Orleans to work with special needs children at Holy Name of Jesus School.
Since being here, I have taken on the task of the elementary school art teacher. Teaching art is so much fun! It feels great to know that the kids at The Joseph and Mary Primary School are excited to come explore their creativity!
I have not only become attached to the girls at the home, but also to the kids at the school. I have experienced so many new things so far, and I cannot wait to see what else JBFC has in store for me in the future.
Check back, we’ll post New Faces, Pt 2 starring George Landrum on Tuesday, July 10th.
