I really enjoy having so many friends here at Elk Grove! We’re able to dance and I can sing my favorite country songs during karaoke. The prom last year was pretty cool; it was my favorite!

I love the interaction that I get with the consumers being a Covina Program Instructor. Its great being part of their progression and seeing them achieve their goals! My favorite class is Arts and Craft because you get to see their imaginations run wild. I always encourage them to keep going and not to give up because the possibilities are endless!

My favorite part of the Covina AIM HIGHER is exercise class. I enjoy using my walker and exercise equipment to work on my arms. My favorite activity is cooking class, I like cutting up the vegetables and fruit, and helping staff pass out food.

My favorite part about working at Orange Grove are all the people- from staff to clients. There is a great sense of family at AIM HIGHER and I love that the best. My favorite classes are State History and Historical Figures. I love learning about the topics myself and also teaching them to the clients as well.

I absolutely love the clientele at Orange Grove. They are such wonderful people, they have great energy and enthusiasm. It makes me so happy that they love coming to AIM HIGHER. My favorite class is Zumba, I love picking songs they love and choreographing moves. The class has a huge turnout, so I know that I am doing a great job.
