WATERVLIET- Geraldine Ferris is a petite woman, but for the past 20 years, she’s had an extremely big heart when it comes to helping students at Watervliet Elementary School get the best education.

In fact, whatever the need, Mrs. Geraldine, the outreach coordinator, is there for the kids.

From kind words, to collecting for Thanksgiving giveaways to students, to giving a parent a jump. Mrs. Geraldine realizes it all adds up to preparing a student to learn.
