During the school year, Anna Manthey is a teacher at Urban Promise in Wilmington, where she teaches 3rd and 4th graders. She will be starting her fifth year as a teacher in the fall, but her job doesn’t stop when summer roles around. After a Teach for America Corps member first introduced Anna Manthey to the Summer Learning Collaborative, she decided to take on the role of Instructional Coach at the Boys and Girls Club this summer.
Ultimately, however, one of the most rewarding parts of her job is working with her team of counselors. “The staff really cares about the kids, and they are passionate about making a difference in these kid’s lives,” Manthey described. She cited some of the best parts of her job as seeing her campers use the anger management strategies that her team has taught them.
