Meet Makenzie

Anchor Center Class of 2019

About Makenzie

from Anchor Center staff

“Makenzie is very social, loves to see what her friends are up to, likes hugs and takes on a teacher/mother role with peers, escorting them to circle time or telling them to clean up. Though she communicates mainly through gestures and vocalizations, she is starting to use a lot more language this year.” – Kathryn Tower, Speech/Language Pathologist

“Makenzie Moreno has been in my classroom the last 2 years at Anchor Center, and it has been incredibly fun being able to help and watch her grow. When Makenzie first started in Anchor’s Toddler Program she was practicing her walking skills independently, and now she is running down the hallways, navigating around the playground, and using her cane better and better every day. Makenzie has always had such a sweet demeanor and is an AMAZING friend! She is the kind of kid that greets the new student with open arms, helps her peers sign in and follow along with yoga, and it always up for taking a wagon ride with a friend. I have had the honor and pleasure of getting to know this beautiful little soul, and making such a special connection with her. She has an infectious smile, and one of the best laughs I’ve ever heard. I am so proud of all the progress she has made throughout the years, and I know she is going to keep on shining wherever life takes her. Way to go, Kenz! Ms. Caroline and the Anchor Staff will miss you so!” – Caroline Calabrese, TSVI
