This is my 2nd year in the REACH Program. This past January I was hired by the Radiology Department as an Imaging Transporter. I work and get paid 3 days a week. I’m still job training 2 days a week so that I can get more experience in different departments because someday I will transfer to St. Joe`s South because I live in Riverview.
This is my 2nd year at REACH. I‘m getting good work experience. Not only do I job train 4 days a week in different departments, I also work part time 5 days a week at Miles Elementary. I get paid for working with children in the after school program called HOST. I work with K and 1st graders. Since I’ve been in REACH I’ve learned how to figure out different bus routes so I can get around town pretty easily.
Hi! This is my 2nd year in REACH. I am getting good work experience 4 days a week. I job train in different departments every 9 weeks and I enjoy it. I also got a job working with children at an after school program called HOST and I also get paid for being a teacher aide. I really enjoy it! The school I work at is Rampello and it is a magnet school.
REACH is also where I met my boyfriend Joshua B. He is the most amazing, funny, and lovable person that I ever have loved. He completed the REACH program in June so we try to get together every weekend.
Good morning, everybody! My name is Monika and I just turned 21 on September 21. I enjoy being in the REACH program and I am almost at the end of being in REACH. My new job that I have in the REACH Program is as an Imaging Transporting for the Radiology Department. Plus, I got hired as a fitting room assistant over at Marshall’s on Dale Mabry Blvd. I will be started that job in October, and I love everything about it.
My favorite thing to do in my free time is spending some quality time with my family and going out of town to visit even more of my family that I haven’t seen in awhile. I also love going to church, listening to my favorite music every day, and I love going to the mall with my mother.
The REACH Program has taught me many things like becoming even more independent in what I want to do in life, learning about the different kinds of jobs that are in the hospital and learning how to do a job. I am very grateful to have been in this program and having such amazing teachers such as Mrs. Price and Mrs. Melika helping me out with everything that you need help with in the program.
