Early Childhood Education Changes Lives

15 May

On November 13, 2009, I added a postcript to this post  about a young man who spent most of my visit to his school crying. I was able to talk to him, in Spanish, and reassure him that everything was okay. It was his first week of preschool.

This week I made my last visit of the school year to his preschool. He’s still there. In a year and a half, he’s become a confident, sweet, smiling little guy. He speaks to me in accented, but very good, English.

Next year he’ll be in Kindergarten, and I won’t see him.  I will miss him. I wish I could follow him and find out how he progresses in life. I have a feeling, though, that he’s gonna be great.

Never doubt that Early Childhood Education changes lives.
