When Mia came to Bullis Charter School as a new student in fourth grade, she received a lot of questions from other students about her hearing aid. After speaking with her parents and teacher, Mia decided to gather a group of kids that also have differences to develop a presentation in which we could share our challenges and create awareness and understanding in our school community.
We quickly volunteered to help. Ariya has a nut allergy and has to sit at a nut-free table at lunch. Nyla is from England, and she’s afraid of people making fun of her British accent. Ava moved to the U.S. from China in second grade and she wears glasses.
