Learner Spotlight: Melody Mitsui
This is a year of “firsts” for Melody Mitsui. She is a first grader, it is her first year homeschooling, and her first year with iLEAD Exploration.
Melody is enjoying learning at home this year, because she likes being with her mom and being able to go on vacations with her family. This fall, they were able to travel to Korea together to celebrate a family wedding.
Melody loves to study history and is especially interested in a timeline that is helping her learn about the Middle Ages. She has also been busy learning all of the 50 states and their capitals as well. Other “firsts” for Melody have been learning Latin and playing “Mary Had a Little Lamb” on a tin whistle.
Outside of school, Melody is involved in her church and sings in the children’s choir. She has enjoyed learning how to ride a horse, ice skate, and dance. When she has free time, you can find her happily playing Pokemon cards with her older brother, Matthew, or wrestling with her younger brother, Micah.
Melody also gets to share about her homeschooling experience with friends on a radio program each week. Tune in on Thursdays to KGBC 1190 AM at 2:30 p.m. to hear her live!
Melody is a sweet, talented learner who will have many more “firsts” throughout her education!
