Shelley Holloway

Founder, Mindware Academy

At the beginning of this year this school was all new to me. I was a new student. I used to go to a different school. I think this school is a lot better than my old school because I get a lot more one on one time with my teachers and I have made a lot more friends. This school has taught me that I can do whatever I put my mind to and that I am actually smart. My old school never taught me that kind of stuff. My most memorable moment this year is getting to meet all the amazing children at this school. At the beginning of the year I was worried that I wouldn’t make any friends. This has been the best year ever!
