Bloomfield College faculty members and Kappa Delta Pi (KDP) Honor Society Co-Advisors Margaret O'Reilly/Kenny Kunz were proud to receive the following letter about their students.
"Four ladies have come together this semester to implement what it means to be an effective advocate for children and the community at large. Regina Cora, Michelle Edwards, Lakeesha Thomas, and Shama Perveen have started this semester in a blaze as the new officers of Kappa Delta Pi. Under the direction of Professor Kunz and Dr. O'Reilly, they have taken KDP to new heights. Volunteering their time to work with Toni's Kitchen in Montclair, where they prepared meals and served those less fortunate, gave them the opportunity to impact the community. Each one was deeply touched and moved.
These ladies understand how their learning can be used to better the lives of others.They did not stop there. They are bridging a gap between Bloomfield college and local schools. They went into Fairview school and did a Literacy lesson for the Kindergarten classrooms. Their lesson exemplified literacy and differentiated instruction. They understand how to apply their learning while being creative, thoughtful and address the needs of early childhood education. They are not afraid to step out of the box and come out of their comfort zones. They are currently working towards implementing a mentoring program with Fairview school. The Principal is eagerly anticipating this since he has seen first hand what Bloomfield can produce. Hats off to these students!"
