Student Spotlight: Viergina

Viergina is a shy tenth grade student. I thought she was 17 or 18, but her birthday was a couple of weeks ago and she turned 22! Viergina often sings on the worship team at church, and is involved in the youth group in Gramothe. I think she understands more English than she lets on, but she refuses to talk to me in English. She always finds someone to translate for her. When she can't find someone to speak for her, she uses Creole with me,but she doesn't like it. ;)

My husband mercilessly teases Viergina (pronounced vee air-gina, with the second g sound in garage) because her boyfriend is the student body president. Arold has made up a song about "Madam President" that he sings whenever he sees her, and he frequently asks when they are getting married. She's clearly embarrassed when he does this because she blushes and turns her face away, but it must not bother her too much because she continues to seek us out.
