Although Josiah Fullwood is a first-time kindergartner who is scheduled to attend Frances K. Sweet, he has already made a huge impression on teachers at Village Green Environmental Studies School during the opening professional development day.

As 100 Book Challenge trainer Meighan Radigan models how teachers should level an incoming kindergarten child for his appropriate reading level, teachers and administrators were both stunned and thrilled that Josiah continued to ascend the reading levels to match first grade reading fluency and comprehension!

Josiah shared with the group that he enjoys reading about animals and even pointed out that he saw a fish in the pond before entering the beautiful facilities of the Botanical Gardens where the training took place. That drew a chuckle from the audience.
