JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Charlotte Chufo always has a smile on her face.
"I love making friends!" Chufo said.
"When I have new students, she's usually the first friend that they find," explained Stephanie David, Chufo's fourth-grade teacher at New Berlin Elementary.
David said Chufo is a class leader, adding, "I can depend on Charlotte to encourage and mentor the other students."
And Chufo also loves school. "You meet new people, you learn about stuff, of course. I especially like lunch and recess. But my favorite subject I have to say is reading."
She also likes writing, but so far is not a fan of math.
But her classmates are fans of hers.
"I actually think Charlotte is a good person," said her classmate and friend Kadarrius Wright. "She always does the right thing."
Chufo said her friends and the teachers make school fun.
When she grows up, she hopes to be a teacher herself or a dolphin trainer.
