My oldest child is in 1st grade. Last night was Parent/Teacher Conferences. Kylei is a bright child who at this point in her academia hasn't really struggled. Her teacher is pleased with her progress and has started her in an Enrichment Program. But the thing that pleased me most was hearing that her teacher allows Kylei to help her classmates, because of how calm and helpful she is with her fellow classmates. Her teacher was impressed that she is not over-bearing, bossy, or arrogant.
One of the funny stories her teacher told me happened last week. Her teacher wasn't feeling well and Kylei told her that if she just left her things with her (Kylei) that she would teach the class and her teacher could go home. How sweet!
