2016 Honorary Service Award – Maiko Green

Maiko is such a unique person as she possesses not only incredible creativity, but also a strong work ethic and a true sense of compassion and caring for our children and the entire BA community. Under her loving guidance, the garden has blossomed and the Holiday Boutique has become a cherished annual tradition for our students and their families. If this was not enough, Maiko still finds time to help with lunch duty and to volunteer in the classroom. She has consistently represented Japan at our Multi-Cultural Experiences. The projects she has lovingly cultivated and nurtured here at BA will continue growing and enriching our students’ learning experience, while Maiko will be off to help our children plant new seeds of learning at the Arroyo School.

Maiko has been involved in the BUGS program for 5 years. She works mostly behind the scenes, making sure that all the materials for the garden and lessons are stocked and ready to go. She is diligent, organized, and reliable. She anticipates problems and suggests solutions with grace and patience. In addition, Maiko serves as an incredible resource of knowledge and experience for all things gardening. Her expertise has helped diagnose plant diseases, identify pests, ensure even watering, and determine fertilizer and amendments so that crops grow well. Her helpfulness and time commitment to this school may not be visible to everyone, but I guarantee that every child at BA has benefited from her kindness and outreach.
