What was your favorite memory about being at Children’s Discovery Academy?
“Being superstar of the week in Jill Finnegan’s class — the beautiful poster she made for each individual kid is just one example of what a thoughtful and engaging teacher “Miss Jill” is.
Dance lessons with “Miss Lynn” and dressing up for the recitals. At five years old, being able to dress up in a tutu and prance around the stage was about the best thing ever. And the videos are priceless.
The Halloween parade in Kindergarten when I inexplicably decided not to wear my costume. For whatever reason, I just didn’t feel like being Superhero Barbie that day, but the staff at Children’s Discovery made sure I still had fun!”
Do you still keep in touch with any friends you met at Children’s Discovery Academy?
“I still keep in touch with a girl from my Kindergarten class, and I truly believe that my experience at Children’s Discovery laid the foundation for my continued love of learning.”
What special accomplishments have you achieved since graduating from Children’s Discovery Academy?
“National Merit Scholar, Girl Scout Gold Award, Varsity (High School) Lacrosse & Nordic Sking, HS NHS President, High Level Figure Skater.”
