    Haley Nieves: New to school, but sees her grades are not as good as she would like. She has asked for extra work and has completed it in a timely manner. She also understands concepts and helps her peers when they are struggling. - Vaja Saetieo

     

    Dario is a great student. History is a lot of work, but he consistently shows that he is dedicated to his success. He is always on task, is engaged throughout the lesson, answers questions, and always turns in high quality work. He doesn't hesitate to ask for help from peers or myself, and is willing to work with and help his classmates. He is very funny, adding humor to class discussions and is a great source of candy for some of the kids in our class lol. I very much enjoy having him in class and I wish I had more students like him. - Kelsey Lynch

    Long Nguyen is a great addition to his lab partners while working on group work and projects.  I enjoy him in class and wish him success in the future. - Laura Oswalt

    Huy is such a polite and respectful student. He greets me when he comes in every day and also says goodbye before he leaves. He continually thanks me for teaching him. He always does his homework, pays attention in class, and is a very reliable student. When Huy is struggling with the calculus material, he attends tutoring to get help, which I respect as an educator. Huy is a quiet student, so he doesn't often get the positive attention that he deserves! He is a joy to teach! - Michelle Nelsen

    • Kevin Co
    • Karenn Guerrero
    • Yashar Samsami
    • Sifti Kaur

    Kevin Co consistent positive attitude is infectious. His willingness to help out others and uplift them has helped shape the culture of our 6th period.

    Yashar Samsami  - I was absent last week and posted a video lesson for my calculus students to watch. Yashar took ownership by attempting the homework problems for many hours even though he was struggling with the material since I wasn't there to teach it in person. He committed himself to solving his calculus even though the problems were very challenging! He also asks great questions in class and helps us stay on task because he takes his ownership of his learning very seriously! - Michelle Nelsen

     

    Sifti Kaur is an outstanding student in my class. She consistently stays ahead of the assigned Microsoft projects. Since she is able to work ahead, she often spends her class time helping her fellow students understand the project tasks in Microsoft Excel. I have actually called her my Assistant Teacher, because that is the behavior she takes on for multiple students in the computer lab. Sifti displays enthusiasm, optimism, and leadership everyday. She is an excellent role model with an excellent attitude. She defines what SOAR is all about. - Mr. Todd Newberg

    • Ariel Blalock
    • Christine Tran
    • Orlando Garza
    • Santiago Martinez

    Ariel Blalock:     Honestly, I wish I could have nominated her for every SOAR category. Ariel has a maturity level well beyond her years. She takes ownership for every project, every endeavor, actually, when it comes to the Teaching and Training pathway. She is supportive, helpful, and encouraging to her peers and demonstrates creativity and enthusiasm consistently. For example, on her own accord, Ariel regularly reaches out to other students whom she knows are struggling and offers her assistance on assignments and projects. She will communicate with me about those she helps and will ask for affirmation that the information she has disseminated is correct. It is such a joy to witness these characteristics already exhibited in a future teacher! Additionally, she has successfully secured a spot at the TAFE State competitions (no easy feat) and we all hope she will proceed to the national competitions this summer.  - Dr. Liz Starr

     

     

    Christine Tran is always so helpful to the teacher and their peers.  I enjoy her positive personality and thoughtfulness.      - Laura Oswalt
