Meet an Amiguita ~ Clarisa*

It has been such a privilege to watch Clarisa* grow in confidence and a little bit of sass since she arrived as a preschooler. She has made huge progress in many of her school subjects, especially English, and is ready to have a wonderful 4th grade year. Clarisa* has a beautiful relationship with her big sister and little brother, and is part of a group of adventurous girls who love to climb trees and explore our property.
