Best of all: A moment of tears of amazement


The public school teacher of 9-year old Grace, who is getting literacy one-on-one tutoring at GiGi’s Playhouse Madison, wrote the following note to Grace’s parents:

“I was in tears today due to your daughter.  We are working on her state testing and for the writing portion toady, she was asked to write her name.  The picture is what she wrote ALL BY HERSELF and did not have an example to look at to copy or trace.  After the last 3 years I have been working with her, I am seen some amazing things.  This is the first time have ever seen her write her name independently and no model!!!!
I have been showing off her work to everyone here that has worked with her over the years.”
We are so proud of you Grace! A best-of-all moment!!
