My nominee for student of the week is Elizabeth Brockman. Elizabeth has been nothing but helpful to me as I have transitioned at Monroe to being Mrs. Lyles’s long-term substitute. I have had the pleasure of having Liz in both drama and English, and her positive attitude and kindness towards her classmates and me is evident in both classes. Liz is respectful and polite towards her classmates and me. She participates dutifully in discussion and brings thoughtful and intellectual comments to class. Elizabeth works very hard and thinks clearly about literature and understands it, and her passion for Shakespeare is evident. I would say she demonstrates both the Jesuit pillars of being open to growth and intellectually competent in class. Because of her strong work ethic and excellent attitude, I nominate Elizabeth Brockman for student of the week.
