Thank you Lydia and Happy 75th Birthday Brick!
The Brick Church School Progress Summary
Name: Lydia Spinelli
...
Lydia is a lovely gal who, when given the opportunity, readily separates from parents or caregivers.
Lydia cooperates with teachers and peers and regularly takes the role of leader in the classroom. She shows a great deal of empathy for her school mates and participates well in small group activities, even without teacher facilitation. She is extremely confident. Lydia demonstrates age appropriate frustration tolerance even though she is constantly being put to the test and, for the most part, she is able to regulate her emotions in an age-appropriate manner.
Classroom Skills
Comments:
Lydia is able to work independently and shows great initiative, but she is most comfortable when her friend Amy is there to back her up.
Lydia understands and is able to follow daily routines and schedules but sometimes it is necessary for her to totally abandon those routines to accommodate others.
...
We have been encouraging Lydia to learn to say "No" to people who might take advantage of her good nature and willingness to take on more than her share.
...
Lydia dresses herself expertly! She demonstrates a great love for color and design and is able to coordinate all her accessories including her shoes, bag, and jewelry. She has also developed an extensive vocabulary that includes: Chanel, Hermes, Louis Vuitton and "Charge it."
We have been encouraging Lydia to regulate her impulse to buy more things. This is quite challenging for her, but we see it as an ongoing process.
Gross Motor Skills
Comments:
We are fairly positive that Lydia does not "freely" participate in gross motor activities, and we have never actually seen her skip. She is, however, constantly running to meetings, lectures, workshops, and luncheons - which she does quite well - and we have seen her jump on a few occasions (for instance, when one of the classes decided on a snake as the class pet.) On the rare occasion when Lydia has a moment, she can "sit appropriately."
Fine Motor Skills
Comments:
Here is where Lydia excels. She is extremely adept at picking up small shiny objects, which she effortlessly turns into necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. She can string beads masterfully and is very generous in sharing her hard work with all her friends.
Additional Comments:
Lydia is an intelligent person with strong opinions. While we try to discourage name calling, we have heard her classmates say things like, "Who does she think she is, the boss? or "You're not the boss of me," to which she replies; "Oh yes I am! In the end her classmates accept this behavior because she has demonstrated over and over again that she knows what she's talking about.
Lydia is a kind, generous, intelligent, devoted friend with a booming laugh and a warm smile.
...
Lydia is one of the smartest and most caring people we know. The school mirrors her expertise as an educator, her lofty personal and professional standards, her ever-present optimism and her emphasis on joy in learning. Her outrageously wonderful sense of humor is beyond belief and has been known to quickly allay anxieties and smooth out a crisis for teachers and families alike.
Lydia's passion for early childhood education, her love for children, her continuous work with the African Dream Academy and Summer Steps, are inspiring. Every day at Brick, Lydia offers us her intelligence and demonstrates her drive. She works hard! Her most contagious attribute is the enthusiasm and sheer delight she radiates when discussing anything related to the education of young children.
Lydia is a true and devoted advocate. An advocate for students and their parents. An advocate for faculty and administrative staff. An advocate for children at Brick and beyond Bricks' walls. Indeed, she is a tremendous advocate, campaigner, and promoter of early childhood education itself. Her tireless work has benefited many and she is an outstanding example for all of us in our work with young children.
We thank Lydia for her thoughtfulness, professionalism, kindness, loyalty, and wisdom. We can't imagine a better mentor. We have been lucky to learn from her and are eager to learn more. Thanks to Lydia, The Brick Church School is full of smiling faces, happy children, proud parents, and passionate teachers.
As a staff and faculty, past and present, we wish a Happy 75th Birthday to the Brick Church School, a robust and outstanding school whose current success is firmly grounded in the strength of its leader.
Thank you Lydia and Happy Birthday Brick!!!!!!
