Jaleeia enrolled at Pathway in July of 2016 and has shown significant progress both academically and socially. The advancements she has made in her reading and math skills this past school year have been impressive! In the classroom Jaleeia goes out of her way to help others and is seen as a role model for her peers. She gave up earned free time to become a mentor for several younger students, encouraging them to engage in positive behaviors and to effectively navigate potentially stressful or upsetting social situations. During play rehearsals, she was always willing to offer assistance to student’s looking for extra support to learn their lines.

Jaleeia joined The Pathway Players as a newcomer and has had stand-out performances with her show stopping solo as Little Inez in Hairspray Jr. this past school year and during the previous school year as the lead ingénue in Singing in the Rain . Her numerous talents and abilities garnered her the opportunity to sing at Pathway’s Gala celebration last November, enchanting all who were present with her rendition of Lucky Star . Jalieea was one of six Pathway Players performing Finian’s Rainbow at Theatre Horizon. We were dazzled by her performance and look forward to experiencing more accomplishments from this remarkable young lady!
