Things to know about (Strenghts)

To guide the teachers on how to approach our kids in school, we (Owie, Lea and me better known as the "super involved, sometimes paranoid moms") decided to give them something to help them get to know our kids. This is what I've come up about Jea.

Jea is very special to all of as and she knows she is special. But she is not a brat, she is obedient, disciplined, thoughtful, and very smart. She just turned 3 last June 7. We sent her to school to harness her intelligence. She has to interact with other kids so that she can develop social skills. I believed that Kiddo Academy can help me this objective.

We can work together into developing these objectives. So here are some facts about Jea to help you:


1. She is usually playful, lively and talkative. But, I noticed that in school she is usually behaved, stay seated and keep quiet.
2. She has a very strong sense of humor. She’s smart enough to think of a punch line that can really make you laugh.
3. She understands English and can converse with English and tagalog.
4. We talk to her like an adult and hope you do that too.
5. She is very independent and loves to help with chores. I don’t mind if you ask help on little things. Like picking a paper that fell. This makes her feel appreciated.
