Looking Deeper:

The Red Ledger: What do you enjoy about working on the lunch staff?

Sarah Sanchez: It’s fun, I like that I just have a four hour shift, so it’s flexible. It’s fast paced, so that’s good, and I like the people I work with. I like getting to know the kids and meeting new kids each year and seeing how they change over the years.

TRL: What exactly is your job?

SS: I do food prep, sometimes I cook, I serve, I clean, I do inventory, pretty much everything. We all end up doing it at some point.

TRL: Is there an experience with the students that you like best?

SS: The experiences I like best are when I see kids in line being super kind. Like somebody doesn’t have money, sometimes the kid behind them will buy the Chick-fil-a for them. That’s really heartwarming to me. I like seeing how kind the kids at Lovejoy are. I don’t know that it happens everywhere.

TRL: Are there any certain students that stuck out to you?

 SS: Oh, yeah. There’s definitely the ones who talk back, you know, engage with us. We really like to talk to them.

TRL: What kind of stuff do you talk about?

SS: A lot of us will read the school newspaper, and the emails that come out, so we try and interact with the kids we see that have some accomplishments. Normally that’s fun, because they’re really excited that we actually know, like, “Oh, congratulations, we just saw that you won, like, cross country state recently,” and kids are really excited that we actually pay attention to that. So that’s fun, to interact with them like that.
