Emma Chang has been a top-notch student in my Humanities class this year. Yes, she completes all her work on time and to a high standard of excellence, which is wonderful. More importantly, however, she engages herself completely and passionately in the subject matter in a way that reflects curiosity, open-mindedness, and genuine interest in whatever we are studying. This passion for learning manifests itself in assignments and class contributions that reveal both a deep knowledge of the subject and a love for learning and the arts that is admirable.

Sarah Sanchez is in my 5th period ASL class. She came into my class a little later than the rest of them, but lost no time in getting caught up. She’s now one of my leading students in fluency and enthusiasm. Even on her roughest days she always comes in with a smile on her face and encourages everyone around her. Often when we come across a challenging aspect of ASL she’s the one who’ll keep the entire class positive.

Josie Boultinghouse’s enthusiasm and work ethic for the subject is greatly appreciated. She works hard to stay on top of current topics and isn’t afraid to participate in class discussions. Her positive attitude, personality and smile bring enjoyment to our class. She is also a positive role model. For these reasons, Josie is worthy of receiving the student of the month award for Health.

Tyeson Gamble is an exemplary student in Ceramics I. His natural abilities with conceptualizing an idea in clay and recognizing the lessons learned in the process speaks of an advanced level student and not a beginner. What particularly impresses is Tyeson’s questioning: he continually inquires on techniques and outcomes in construction and glazing and uses any information to experiment and better his process in creating unique and well-crafted art work.
