The Magic of Maisy Bishop

October 15, 2020

Congratulations to ACSA Region 2 Every Student Succeeding winner Maisy Bishop from Arete Charter Academy in Grass Valley. Maisy was born at just 24 weeks. She weighed 1 pound, 12 ounces and survived heart surgery at only four days old. In elementary school, Maisy was diagnosed with dyslexia, dyscalculia, and dysgraphia along with sensory issues and needed special education in reading, writing and math. With all odds stacked against her, Maisy learned to love herself and accept her disabilities as she flourished at Arete. “Maisy just is magic,” Sarah said of her daughter. “She just is. I say this all the time, she’s the best thing on earth. And she is. She is the best thing on earth.”
