She is as effervescent as her name, Joy. She is utterly irrepressible. “No talking” is an impossible rule for her. If she sees a friend, she simply must say hello. If something stirs a thought, she is compelled by her nature to share it. She is always sunny and happy, yet she is outraged by any perceived injustice and has to bring it to light immediately. If she thinks a friend needs something, she tries to get someone to notice.

She is a kindergartener now. How many times will she hear someone say “Sh-h-h” in her school days? How many times will “talks too much’ appear in the comments on her report cards? How many times will she be told not to tattle or to mind her own business?

Oh, Joy, please stay bubbly!

    I love bubbly! With the lines, “She is as effervescent as her name, Joy. She is utterly irrepressible,” I determined Joy is a student you want in your class. Someone to encourage and support all who need it, someone to be in charge of smiles. What a beautiful tribute to Joy! I agree with you, “Oh, Joy, please stay bubbly!”

    Hope her character always fits her name. She sounds like she would be a joy to have in a classroom.

    What a joy! This reminds me of a first grader I had, and he would try so hard to keep it in. But looking at him, you could tell he was about to bust because he wanted to talk so badly. Hopefully she will always have teachers who appreciate that Joy!

    Your first sentence is filled with joy! I love the word effervescent. I have a whole bunch of Joys in my class this year.

    I love that name. And effervescent. I hope that the school system won’t squash her down. That her name will carry her through life.
