This is really about my granddaughter, Indiana and one wonderful lady, her pre-school teacher, Ms. Natalie Valle. It all began at Jefferson Elementary School, Riverside, California. I had the honor of walking Indiana to her pre-school classroom each afternoon. Indiana adored Ms. Valle. It really hurt when Indiana left that morning of October 6, 2006. Ms. Valle was upset in hearing the news. Indiana would no longer be in her class. But, during the six weeks Indiana attended Jefferson Elementary School, Head Start, Ms. Valle's Room #1, she learned a lot. I have never seen so much time and effort put forth toward each child. Ms Valle is certainly a dedicated teacher. Indiana's cognitive skills as well as social skills had significantly improved. It was exciting watching my little four year old granddaughter grow in leaps and bounds. It hurt having to make that call to Ms. Valle which would end Indiana's enrollment in the program. It is now six months later. Likewise, this message is long over due. Thank you Ms. Valle. I miss you and so does Indiana. In a like manner, Head Start is a wonderful program for pre-schoolers I highly recommend Head Start Pre-School to all parents who have children almost entering into kindergarten. The child has so much to gain from this program.
