SEBASTIEN’S SCHOOL SUCCESS

When Sebastien* arrived at La Providencia late last year as an 11-year-old, he had no formal school training – a situation several children find themselves in when they come to a Micro Community. Sebastien began kindergarten, but struggled to learn and comprehend basics in math and language arts. Things didn’t stay that way for long, though, thanks to teachers who noticed his stagnancy and went above and beyond to help him through it. 

A teacher’s aide began giving him one-on-one instruction, and eventually saw dramatic growth in his ability to recognize letters, read, write, and correctly do math. 

“This week we finished the curriculum content for all planned areas, and Sebastien’s progress is very noticeable,” his tutor said in a report. “He has successfully implemented the skills acquired; developing in each academic area.”

Sebastien’s leaps and bounds are a testament to our academic staff’s dedication to students’ needs. Watching him go from a boy who struggled to read to successfully reading 15 simple sentences is evidence that with the right attention, some obstacles aren’t as tall as they seem. 

Sebastien’s next challenge? First grade!
