Meet Mabel


Science wiz.
Creative writer.
Empathetic friend.

Hermione Granger has nothing on her.

With a vibrant intellect and unshakeable devotion to her friends, kindergartener Mabel has a lot in common with her favorite book’s heroine, Hermione Granger. She is a keen writer and reader who looks to logic to untangle tricky concepts in the classroom. This pint-sized wordsmith is also a firm believer in the power of the pen, often writing personalized notes to her family members.

  • Building brain power:

    “I like building things and solving problems. I love playing with LEGOs. Most of the time I build different houses.”
  • What she likes about Ellis:

    “I like my friends! They’re kind. We do new things together. It’s fun to play with them and run around on the playground.”
  • How her teachers make learning fun:

    By doing special activities. “Sometimes we do fun activities and have silly sayings so we can remember things. Like when we were learning about maps, they taught us ‘Never Eat Soggy Waffles’ so we could remember north, east, south, and west.”
  • What she’s good at:

    “I really like to write. I write notes to my family. Sometimes I write stories. I like Harry Potter and reading, too.”
  • When she grows up:

    “I want to be a scientist. I want to discover cool things and build robots. Maybe one day I can make an invisible robot that cleans houses.”
