CFISD Student of the Week: Miranda Tuck

Jan. 23, 2018—Birkes Elementary School fifth-grade student Miranda Tuck’s kind heart and humility toward fellow students, who she helps with classwork, and campus staff, who are on the receiving end of her notes of kindness, led to one of her teachers saying “she is an inspiration to all of her classmates.”

School: Birkes Elementary School

Age: 10

Grade: 5


Accomplishments: Tuck offers to teach other students sign language so they can interact with hearing-impaired students and is constantly willing to help struggling students with their classwork. She chose “humble” for a character trait for a class project, which is fitting as she continuously writes random notes of kindness to teachers and other staff.

Favorite class: Math. “I thinks it is really cool that my teacher is also a band mom whose son plays with my older sister.”

Favorite things to do after class: “Play outside, draw and read.”

Favorite song: “I love the whole soundtrack to the movie Coraline and the soundtrack to the new movie The Greatest Showman.

Favorite website: “I like the Birkes technology website where there are links to fun games like ‘Quick Draw’ where the Google AI (artificial intelligence) tries to figure out what I drew.”

Favorite movie: Caroline. “Me and my siblings have the entire movie memorized.”

Ambition: “I love artwork such as drawing. I also adore birds and maybe I’ll have a future in zoology or animal photography one day.”

What topics/things are you passionate about?: “Dogs, puppies and other animals.”

What inspires you: “There is a song in the movie The Greatest Showman called ‘This is Me.’ It inspires me to be myself. People should not judge others and we all should be proud of who we are.”

What three things can’t you live without?: “Friends, family and my mom’s delicious cooking.”

What are you most looking forward to this semester: “Getting more computer access in technology.”
