Checking in with children

Grandma Laurie

Foster Grandparents - Gratiot County


Having Grandma Laurie in our room is a true blessing. She is always willing to help students around the classroom. Grandma checks in with students about how their day is going, how they feel, and needs that pop up throughout the day. She is really like an extra grandma to many of these students. The kids LOVE having her in our  classroom and always give her hugs when it’s time to go!—Nicole Schian
