Alert, vivacious Jocelyn with eyes flashing rushed into the first grade classroom. Her whole demeanor cried out for attention and when she entered the scene all things came to life. Her contributions during science class made the others sit up and take notice. Language classes held more spice when Jocelyn was present, and even the puppet show appeared more enticing. "Listen to ME" seemed to be the message conveyed by her alert eyes and even without saying it she captured her audience so that they sat spellbound. From all outward appearances, she was a well adjusted, stimulating, and intelligent learner—only her teacher held the real key to her secret.
