What's your favorite thing about working at PEP? My favorite thing about PEP is the balance between the two different groups. You work with K-2 and it's super fun and you hear the funniest conversations and the students come up with the coolest ideas and activities to do. It's always the best vibes and they definitely lift your spirits, just never a dull moment. When you head over to 3-5 you have to be on your A-game! It's competitive and fun, and if you’re looking to be active it's definitely the place to be because they keep you on your toes and every day is different which is always the best.
