Kaleidoscope – Before and After School!

About Kaleidoscope:
 
Our purpose is to provide high quality educational, recreational and cultural opportunities for children. Kaleidoscope Corner’s philosophy is to provide a creative, safe and caring environment for children before and after the regular school day. We believe that choice is essential for children’s growth and happiness. We teach children to solve their own problems by modeling correct behavior and emphasizing clear conduct guidelines. Our child care centers are staffed with qualified professionals trained in the areas of CPR, First Aid, and activity planning and behavior management. Kaleidoscope Corner operates Monday-Friday with the following program components and hours of operation.

Noel Emerson:

My name is Noel Emerson and I am the Program Specialist for Discovery Link formerly known as Kaleidoscope corner.  I have been fortunate enough to be a part of the Sabin Community for a year and also a team player for Denver public schools for five years!

My staff and I are delighted to have Sabin students in the Discovery Link Early Riser and/or After School program, and look forward to sharing the school year together with him/her. As an educator, I want to create an environment that will foster a passion for knowledge. Discovery Link is a tool to connect the community with the social, emotional, and academic needs for all children. Thereby enhancing their performance and improving behavior within the classroom.

I believe that the best way to ensure the success is connecting our community, to the school, to families, and to the program is to have open communication with teachers, parents and Discovery Link Staff so please feel free to discuss your questions, concerns, comments, and suggestions with myself and staff at any time. I am excited and ready for an awesome year at Sabin World Elementary! 

The Amazing Discovery Link Staff

Ann Dominguez:

My name is Anna Dominguez, I am a proud Mexican-American and a student at the University of Colorado Denver. I will soon be completing my bachelors in Elementary Education K-6 and a minor in Psychology.  My hobbies include painting on canvas with friends, spending time with my family, singing karaoke, being a goof ball. My goal in Discovery Link is to make the kids and parents feel welcomed by greeting them with a smile every day. In addition, creating a safe environment in which all children can thrive to be successful. Teachers and I will collaborate to develop lessons that work in building the students social, emotional and physical skills. I love building connections with all of the families in some type of way because that allows the children to feel they have a family at Discovery Link. Once I was told treat EVERYONE like a ROCKSTAR and allow them to show you who they are, with no preconceived judgment, you never know what they are going through in life. Join us at Discovery Link!

Brittney Smith

Hello my name is Ms.B (Brittney) one of my true passions in life is working with children and watching them grow. What I bring to Discovery Link is the ability to help all children in all ways possible. Weather that is helping with homework, listening to them or just throwing a football with them. I believe the more children receive from adults in their lives the more they will give to the world!!

I graduated from University of Colorado Denver with a degree in Sociology, Psychology, and Ethnic Studies. In the near future, I would like to attend graduate school in School Counseling.
