I have had the pleasure of working with the student of the month for the last four years. In these four years she has grown educationally and matured throughout the years. She went from being a shy timid young girl who is now willing to ask questions if she doesn’t understand something. She will stand up for her peers when she is needed. The student of the month will also advocate for what she and her peers need in the classroom. In the past she would sit back and take it all in. Now she is more active student within the classroom and is more eager to learn than she was in the past. The student of the month gets excited when she sees success in herself and when she sees that she has faltered she will try even harder to make sure she improves. She is always concerned about her grades and wants to do well in the classroom. When taking test with me one-on-one recently she verbally answered her questions as she wrote then down and was excite because she knew as she was answering she was doing extremely well. She is a breath of fresh air because she is a student that wants to achieve and tries her hardest at all times.

D. Hull

The student of the month has made an astounding turn around in her academic life. I had her last year, during that time she missed dozens of days, failed to complete numerous assignments and expressed a general disinterest in school. This year as an eighth grader she has cut her absents way down (only 5) has brought her grades up to B's and has taken a genuine interest in her education. When I praise for her good efforts she modestly smiles at me, she has matured greatly and now understands the importance of school. She answers questions in class, asks for clarification as needed and has taken a very proactive approach to class work. I am very proud to have her in my class this year. She deserves to be student of the month based on her overall improvement here at Newton Falls. This award will be like a spring board for her, it will show her that work truly pays off.
