Maura Grahek is a pleasure to have in class. Conditioning class requires a willingness to work hard on a consistent basis. Maura is easily one of the better athletes I have had in class, male or female. I greatly appreciate her consistent daily effort.
As a teacher I very much appreciate her quiet competitiveness and desire to do her best at all times. Maura shows not only great effort in class, but also showed great courage and selflessness this year by playing basketball. Maura certainly seems to understand that excellence is not a once in a while decision, but a daily choice.
I also appreciate Maura’s personality. She has the ability to take a joke well and is willing to deliver one back right away. Students like Maura make teaching enjoyable every day.
