Staff Spotlight: Jean Wykoff

I am a recent retired Speech/Language Pathologist of 37 years in the public school system.  Thirty five of those years were spent at Madeira City Schools.   I always knew after retirement I wanted to continue working with students.  One day I saw a flyer at The Benchmark Outfitters store for the Outdoors Adventure Club and that started my new adventures with kids.

My first outdoor adventure was at the Cincinnati Nature Center with 60 plus kids.  The day was filled with laughter as the kids climbed trees, splashed in the creek and bonded with each other. I knew then I found the match I was looking for.  I cannot wait for Saturday of each week for another connection with these kids…it is so fulfilling.  The staff at OAC is friendly and dedicated to each student’s success.  When interacting with the students of OAC, they talk about how they want to come back after graduation and become a staff member so they can continue this wonderful program.

Thank you OAC for everything you do for students!!!!!
