VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH
Congratulations to our December Volunteers of the Month, Rachel Aviner and Mira Geer, who've both given their time to Brinker this semester!
Rachel is our Bear Hugs Chair, helping support our Teacher's Favorites and making sure our staff feels loved! She also volunteers around the school and during different Brinker events. Mira is new to Brinker this year, and jumped right in to volunteering on 4th grade field trips and Grandparents Day! Thank you so much to Rachel and Mira for giving your time to our school!
Rachel has been married to Ari for 18 years. They have 3 boys, Matthew (8th grade), William (6th) and Sawyer (2nd). They moved to Texas from New Jersey in 2019 and have been enjoying spending as much time as possible outside. Rachel is a social worker and grief support specialist, working part time at Plano Presbyterian Hospital, and also for a children's grief group. When she has free time, you'll find her outside on a long walk with friends or by herself (completely lost in a podcast about a true crime story!)
Mira has one daughter, Ava, a 4th grader who transferred to Brinker this year from Hightower. Mira and her family love the outdoors and traveling, and are happy to be part of the Brinker community.
