The Milton Measure

Staff Spotlight: Joanne Delconte

by Hannah Hoffman on Friday, November 8th, 2013

Hungry for a quick bite to eat during recess or in desperate need for an English book five minutes before class, students flood into the bookstore during all hours of the school day. As they snatch up their goods and rush to the counter, these students are always greeted with a warm smile and a bubbly hello from the incredibly friendly Joanne Delconte, the Assistant Bookstore Manager at our school’s bookstore.

Joanne has served Milton for almost five and a half years. She says that she originally decided to join the Academy community not only because of how close she lives to campus, but also because “I just love kids, so I thought it’d be a great place to work.”

As most of us know, the bookstore can become extremely hectic at times, especially during recess and right after eighth period. When asked about an average day for her, Joanne responded with one word: “Crazy.” Laughing at her own response, Joanne continued to say, “There’s a lot to do, but most of my day I’m running around and making sure the place looks good for you guys.”

Although she admits her job gets a little hectic at times, Joanne emphasizes that she really does enjoy it. Her favorite part, she says, is “seeing all the kids and watching them grow up. I see them start off in seventh and eighth grade, and I’ve seen them graduate. It’s so wonderful, but it’s sad to see them go.”

Across the board, students feel the same adoration for Joanne as she does for them. Francesca Ely-Spence (I) says, “Joanne is the friendliest woman… everyone loves her. I don’t know how she puts up with the craziness during recess and still has the energy to ask us how we are and tell us to have a good day.” Elias Peterson (II) agrees. “She’s always been very nice to me and anyone I’ve seen at the store. She’s been helpful when I’ve needed to find something specific, like a book for English. [She is] so talkative, always making conversation when you’re paying or walking around.”

Coming up from the middle school, Eshani Chakrabarti (IV) has known Joanne for four years. Very excited to have the opportunity to talk about Joanne, Eshani said, “Joanne is like my Milton mom. I feel like I always go to her… and she’s always happy to listen. She’s one of those behind the scenes kind of people, and I feel like a lot of people don’t always realize just how caring and helpful she is.”

Although she does not spend nearly as much time with us as our teachers do, Joanne has certainly made an impact on our community simply by being her exceptionally friendly self and taking the time to get to know every student who comes to the counter. As Francesca says, “Joanne actually brightens your day, even just a little, when you leave the bookstore.”
