Hello all! I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jessica Dailey, and I am very excited to be a part of the David L Hoyt Foundation team for the summer. I am a rising senior at Loyola University Chicago majoring in English with minors in Spanish and Psychology.
Before becoming the administrative intern here at the foundation, I spent time interning with both the Modern Language Association’s Midwest division, helping to prepare for and host the association’s annual conference in Ohio, and refugeeONE, organizing after school activities and tutoring for the children of refugee families who were placed in housing around the city.
I am passionate about engaging children and the community with literature and the power of education. The David L Hoyt Foundation allows me to facilitate this throughout the city of Chicago, planning and implementing academic tools that foster growth for students outside of the classroom. Children are the futures of our communities and of our country, and I am passionate about working to build a better foundation for them to grow upon.
The David L Hoyt Foundation’s mission is focused in the learning that derives from interactive, play-based communication and teamwork, which is something that I am proud to help advance during my time here!
That's all! Thanks for reading!
