Maria Alameda

Foster Grandparents - Isabella County

Foster Grandparent, Maria Alameda, serves through sponsor Isabella County Commission on Aging. Maria has been a Foster Grandma for 4 years and is so kind and considerate to everyone around her. Maria stays busy by splitting her day between two different classrooms. This picture shows her working with kindergartners from St. Louis playing Shape Bingo during center time.
One of the teachers that Maria works with said “Grandma has been such an amazing asset to me and my students. She is eager to help out with anything I need and will also do additional tasks without me asking.” Maria is also gracious in driving other Foster Grandmas to our events. Thank you, Maria!
