It is hard to visit ChangeMakers Academy without meeting Jaylen. He is incredibly charismatic and his love of learning is absolutely contagious. He can tell you exactly why the sky is blue, and how rainbows are separated from beams of white light. He also makes sure to use ALL CAPS in his writing to show that he is "REALLY SERIOUS about something". It is no surprise that Jaylen went from finishing Kindergarten to starting 2nd grade because his teachers, administrators and family were confident that he was prepared for 2nd grade material. When he isn't reading, Jaylen loves watching Cartoon Network at his grandma's house. He lives in Fairfield with his mom and sister, Alana.
Words about Jaylen from his Teachers
All About Jaylen!
1. What is your favorite thing about going to school at Caliber?
I enjoy Reflex. It's a website with REALLY fun math games. There's a coach that teaches you the math facts before you play the game.
2. What was your favorite subject?
My most favorite subject ever is math. Well, actually reading and math. Reading books is just like heaven to me; I love to learn.
3. What is your favorite memory associated with music (maybe a memorable concert, or playing an instrument yourself!)?
I haven't gone to a concert or played an instrument, but I do have an acoustic guitar. When I grow up, I'm going to start a band and play the electric guitar.
4. If you could go on a dream vacation, what would you do + where would you go?
I would like to go to the Island of Maui. I've been there before. My mom told me a fact about it: rainbows mostly show up on Maui. I know it's true because when I was there, I looked out of my window 10 times and every time I saw a rainbow! I was so surprised because it wasn't even raining!
5. What is your favorite thing about the Bay Area?
I love when it rains in the Bay Area because I love jumping in puddles after it's been raining!
6. What is one fun fact that most people don't know about you?
One fun fact about me is that I have a beautiful voice! I love to sing JuJu on that Beat.
Keep up the hard work, Jaylen!!
