Student of the Week: Sarah Lindner.
Hi! Hello! Yo! Wazzup! You're New! Who Are You? What’s Your Story? Why are you here? Welcome.
I chose Sarah for my student of the week because I suspect that this is probably what much of her first few days as a part of the Monroe community sounded like. We here at CSF like to think of our school family as just that, a family and we respond like families often do to each new person with excitement and curiosity. This can be a little overwhelming, but Sarah did not shy away. She embraced it. She embraced us. She stepped into a big (well, maybe not that big) new world and did so with grace, charm, and warmth.
In class, Sarah is engaged and excited and willing to contribute. She works hard while also working with her classmates to make the learning more than just the getting of new information. As a teacher, this is perfect. I have a student who wants to learn and is willing to work and excel. But more importantly, Sarah also makes her classmates better. She offers help and comments, shows interests and shares her interests and helps to make the class a group experience. Needless to say, Sarah is a welcome addition to my classroom and our school, and to Sarah I say, welcome.
