"As a teacher, my journey started in nursery and pre-k. Since then, I’ve worked in public, private, charter, and special education settings at the elementary, middle and high school levels. Everything changed for me when I came to QCH Voyages Prep High School.
“I’ve been going to the Pomonok Community Center for seven years. When I’m here, I really enjoy playing ping pong for exercise and keeping me sharp. When you get older, it’s a great exercise against Alzheimer’s. Also, because of my work, I have a lot on my mind and sometimes struggle to sleep.
“I lived in my old apartment in Manhattan for 34 years. When I started to think about retirement, Jackson Heights in Queens was at the top of my list of places, mainly because of the convenient transportation.
On January 12, 150 Queens residents lined up for meals from the reopened food pantry at the Forest Hills Older Adult Center. This marked the food pantry's first day in operation since summer 2021, when the Center closed for renovations.
