A Whiz Kid Who Loves to Learn

Smyrna-Vinings Patch's profile on a local kid who has made his parents and the community proud.

Name: Maddox Sean Carter

Age: 3

School: Peachtree Presbyterian Preschool

Accomplishment: This Smyrna Whiz Kid loves to learn and can read flash cards catered for 7- and 8-year-olds. He can also do Grade 1 math problems and even use an abacus.

Key to Awesomeness: Constant exposure to books and the series "Your Baby Can Read Too." He also uses a lot of material from Frog Street Press that makes learning the ABC's fun!

Don’t forget, Patch wants to recognize your kids, whether they are whizzes in the classroom, after school, or both.

Each week, we seek suggestions from readers for individual kids, youth groups, teens and athletes that wow us with their accomplishments. We want to hear about the amazing youth in our community to spotlight as the Patch Whiz Kid. Click here to see the students we featured last school year.
