Learner Spotlight: Olivia Edwards
iLEAD Exploration kindergartener Olivia Edwards lights up a room with her smile and enthusiasm about her studies. She really does embody optimism, and her family loves to make learning fun, engaging, and memorable.
Two years ago, Olivia’s family became interested in homeschooling because it would allow them to spend more time as a family. They appreciate the flexibility it gives their days, the outside time it allows, and the ability to focus on their kids’ strengths.
Olivia is always so eager to learn! She is constantly asking questions and is proactive about learning the new things presented to her in creative ways, such as memorizing songs to help her learn states and capitals, repeating chants to memorize parts of the body, and adding hand movements to help her remember key information about her studies. Olivia is a great collaborative learner! She loves to synergize within her homeschool group and really enjoys working with others. Her extroverted nature goes perfectly with this month’s focus.
Olivia is not only eager to learn; she is genuinely excited about it! She is optimistic about everything and excited to share all that she has learned with such passion and joy. She always has a good attitude about her coursework and is having so much fun learning! Olivia is such a curious learner! She is always wanting to learn more.
