Learner Spotlight: Everett Stanchfield

IMG_7288 (1)

iLEAD Exploration learner Everett Stanchfield is a kindergartener whose exuberance and enthusiasm can be seen and felt as soon as you meet him. Full of life and energy, Everett is the epitome of this month’s SLO: ZEST! He is endlessly curious and spirited and he carries these characteristics throughout all of his learning.
Everett loves the outdoors and is the happiest when he is out and moving. He loves learning about nature at Santa Clarita Adventure Play and exploring different National Parks and earning his Junior Ranger badges. He loves hiking the local trails with his family and friends, especially when there are streams to play in. He loves learning about outer space, the planets, and interplanetary rovers, and is so excited when he has the opportunity to visit his father’s workplace, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, to learn more. He loves that homeschooling encourages him to learn in a hands-on way instead of sitting at a desk. Everett prefers to complete his lessons outdoors with games that let him move, and he would rather use sidewalk chalk than pencil and paper.
Everett also loves to be creative! He constructs amazing LEGO creations using his LEGO Education WeDo kit and enjoys programming them to light up and make noises. If you give him something with batteries, lights, and gears, he will happily sit for hours to turn them into something new.

Not surprisingly, Everett’s favorite subject is PE, a perfect fit for this zesty boy. He loves parkour and is looking forward to his sixth birthday, when he can start taking classes at a local gym. His current favorite place to log active hours is at the local trampoline park, where he can practice the Ninja course and leap into the foam pit. Everett also has a more calm and mindful side; he is learning to meditate and enjoys yoga with Cosmic Kids Yoga on video. When he grows up, Everett wants to become a firefighter and use his boundless energy to fight fires.
