The City of Mount Vernon, Ohio

Park Director

June - August 2019 • Mount Vernon, OH

What I liked

I enjoyed interacting with elementary students daily and participating in activities with them in the park. This job was interactive and over the past 3 summers of doing it, I learned much about how to discipline and care for children who come from tough backgrounds.

What I wish was different

I believe more structure could be added to the program, including Training For workers on how to interact with kids who have disabilities or traumatic pasts.


Take initiative when you are comfortable to do so. I was able to restructure the park program’s check-in system to make it more safe and efficient. I took an idea I had and made it come alive, which benefited the program.
