“I was born ready!”

Last week while working with one of my small groups, I asked a student if she was ready. Her reply: “I was born ready!” She said it with such gusto that all of us burst into laughter.

This from a little girl who was quite discouraged and disheartened last year. Learning is difficult for her. And yet, she has made great strides and found a glimmer of hope.  She now understands that these symbols on a page hold meaning. She has found the key to the literate world and she is truly feeling empowered.

Words really do change worlds!
