The mother of Luqman, a founding student at Small Steps Gulfton, shared the story of his transformation in just the first few weeks of school:
Luqman was having trouble adjusting to school. He was excited in the morning, but the moment we arrived, he would become scared. Getting him out of the car was a struggle, and once he was out, he ran for the nearest exit. Mrs. Kentasha would help him get out and, even when it was hard, kept trying.
After the Winter Storm when school returned, we were worried about how it would go. Mrs. Kentasha came to our car with her smiling eyes, and Luqman instantly said, “Good Morning, car seat – OUT!” He jumped out the car, held Mrs. Kentasha’s hand, and told us, “Bye.” We are so proud of him!
