Her teacher, Karen Goodell says: "Since the moment I met Cherie, I was impressed with how expressive she is. She is very animated when reading aloud. Cherie also enjoys expressing her self through writing, particularly with poetry. She made a book of poems as a Christmas present for her teacher! She is creative and friendly. She takes pride in doing her very best and working hard. Cherie is energetic and enthusiastic."
