Hope renewed for the Eisley Family
Being a single mother and raising two young boys can be challenge. For LaShonda Eisley it was becoming a battle. Anthony, her nine-year-old, has Sickle Cell disease and 12-year-old Ta’Zarious is dyslexic. To make matters worse, they were trapped in a bad public school.
“Ta’Zarious was teased because of his dyslexia. He would come home and tell me they would call him stupid and dumb. I needed to get them somewhere where they would get one-on-one attention,” said LaShonda.
LaShonda enrolled both children in Greater Baton Rouge Hope Academy, a Louisiana Scholarship Program school for students with special needs.
Anthony and Ta’Zarious now receive the individualized attention they need and are flourishing in the classroom.
“I’ve never seen them this happy, this excited. They’re just ready to get out the door and go to school.”
