She was the subject of my very first Sunday Snapshot. Over three years ago.
And today seemed a perfect day to do it again.
Isabelle’s teacher called me on Friday. With some news.
At the end of the year last year, Isabelle was reading at a level H – one level behind grade level.
The teacher called to tell me that Isabelle’s goal for this year – for all 2nd graders – is to be on level M by the end of the school year.
And she was just tested at level N.
She went on to tell me that, beyond Isabelle’s accomplishments in reading, Isabelle is now the resident encourager to the other kids in her special reading class.
“Come on, you can do it!” she’ll say when someone else is struggling. “Don’t give up!”
So this weekend we celebrated Isabelle. Chocolate cake and neapolitan ice cream with sprinkles. A movie she’s been wanting to see. A lot of praise for how far she has come.
And a whole lot of excitement about how far she’ll go.
You go, girl. You go.
