Juneli is 10 years old, in the Upper Kindergarten class, and is thankful for teachers. Juneli is very quiet but loves to help both teachers and the younger girls alike. Where most girls boss the younger children around, Juneli is very caring, not forceful, and almost maternal in manner. She is patient and watchful, always taking care of others before she manages her own work. She is an absolute joy to have in class.
She has been at the hostel for eight months. Her mother is a widow, working in the fields as a farmer for a living. Juneli has one older sister, one younger sister, two other brothers and one younger brother. Her favorite color is green, her favorite animal is a cow, and her favorite activity is participating in the quiz competitions at the hostel.
Juneli’s favorite subject is English and she wants to grow up to be an English teacher.
