“I’m always amazed what curious little beings they are,” Lesley says about the kindergartners with whom she works on writing skills. She remarks how at first some are a bit nervous, since it is their introduction to the educational system, but then, “they just want to learn.”

Lesley particularly enjoys working with students who are more challenged by the writing process because she likes to watch the progression as they learn the material. “It’s when they realize -‘I get it!’ – I like to see their enthusiasm,” Lesley says. She has observed that once they “get it” and are capable of doing the work, they want to learn more. Lesley notes the happiness in the children as they overcome the difficulties of writing.
