Look at the message I received from Olivia’s P.E. teacher:
Something great happened in PE. I often choose team captains for different activities. Well, Olivia said “I want to be captain”. I was very happy to see she had the interest and passion to speak up for herself. She was eventually a captain last year, but this year she was one of the first. Early last year, since I was new, she wasn’t yet comfortable with me. Now, Olivia says hello to me in the halls, jokes with me, and feels comfortable to participate and share her feelings. I enjoy her as a student and her silly personality.
How great is that? I got teary-eyed, of course, and filled with joy. The fact that her teacher shared that with me was so touching. Not to mention, my little soft-spoken girl is speaking up for herself! When she got home from school, I asked her about it and she was so happy. I said “What do you do when your captain?” She said “RUN!”
I love my girl.
Too cute. I love when people take the extra time to share those thoughts. What a great teacher. It only takes a second to make someone’s day!
Amazing! How great the teacher took the time to let you know of her accomplishments:)
Good going Olivia! It was great that her teacher let you know how much he enjoys Olivia and how much she has opened up in class.
That is awesome! I love it! What a wonderful teacher & so fantastic that Olivia is doing so well!
That’s AWESOME! LOVE Ms. W, she’s so encouraging 🙂 Sylvan is the best!

She’s kinda hard not to love.
Go, Captain Olivia! How wonderful that the teacher took the time to share … and that your sweet girl is blossoming so much!
Ok, even I never made Captain! I’m pretty sure I was always chosen last… So, WAY TO GO OLIVIA!!!!!!!!! She is amazing. And how cool of her to stand up and basically demand that she get a turn. So many reasons I love her!
High five Captain Olivia! Love the goodness in this post.
This made me bleary eyed too!! Love her spirit!
Way to go, Captain O!
