Aries always checks in to see how I'm doing at the beginning of class. As a new teacher, those small check-ins have helped me feel welcome at NHS.

However, this doesn't stop at the classroom. She is always having tutoring sessions at lunch and students seek her out because of the relationships she has built.

Sandip used to struggle to focus and frequently missed assignments. He started coming to my room for help during lunch, and worked with his friends after school to understand the material better. Now Sudip keeps up with his assignments, contributes to class discussion, and maintains his focus. His astounding growth this quarter has been an added reminder of the transformative piower of hard work. Well done, Sandip.

12th - Roland Ntow
I gave Roland a huge list of revisions and necessary additions for his narrative essay rough draft. To my great joy, he addressed every single item I had noted, and his lackluster rough draft transformed into a polished, powerful final draft. That level of perseverance, especially in the midst of a congested soccer schedule, made a strong impression on me; well done, Roland!
9th - Anthony Riddle
On 3 separate occasions students in my 3rd period class left phones or charges behind. When Anthony came into 4th period, he found the devices and immediately turned them in to me for safekeeping. His choice and quick action ensured that students who returned for their forgotten items were reunited quickly thus creating a better environment at school.
10th - Marco Jimenez
IMarco Jimenez teamed up with Christian Johnson to redesign the staff mailboxes on their own time using skills and knowledge gained in their engineering classes to improve work operations. Their well-organized and simple solution makes a mundane task more attractive and easier to carry out both for those using the mailboxes and those responsible for organizing and maintaining the space.
