9th grade: Brodie Mayhew
Brodie is resilient because she does not just settle for a low grade. She wants to know what she did wrong in order to improve the next time. She is always organized and prepared for class. I can always count on Brodie to be actively engaged in the lesson. I have used several of her assignments as examples for others.
10th grade: Andrew Berg

12th grade: Tina Robinson
My Educational Psych kids spent 40 hours in classrooms doing field experience this year. Tina finished her 40 hours and CONTINUES to go to the elementary school to help with the kids. She has logged at least 50 hours beyond what was required. She is amazing!
