My second Student of the Week is Nicole Swallows.
Nicole can be so darn quiet sometimes that she may not receive the recognition she deserves. Beneath that quiet facade lurks a lively mind and a wicked sense of humor. As her English teacher, I am privileged to read things Nicole perhaps divulges only in her writing. One of the more visible contributions Nicole makes at Monroe is to help create the chalk drawings on the seniors’ board in the commons. For her community service, Nicole teams up with one of Mrs. Atkins’s dogs to help ICS students with their reading. Nicole would like to become a counselor, and I’m sure that someone who is as observant and compassionate as she is would be a great one.
