After each day, the students would hang out in the dorms and Gabriela was always open and kind to others. There was an incident where a student had a panic attack and Gabriela called me and stayed with the student until I reached them. Gabriela stayed with the student the entire night and even slept in the room of the student because the student didn’t want to sleep alone. Gabriela’s display of empathy and selflessness was admirable and are characteristics of a great leader.
I have had the pleasure of teaching Fantashia Felder during her sophomore year. It is because of students like Fantashia that I prefer teaching tenth grade over any other. What makes this year so special is that teachers can truly see the transformation of their students from children, to young adults. It's a pivotal moment in a child's life where they must decide if they want to become focused on their academic and professional careers or become super apathetic. Fantashia chose to turn her life around and I am so happy I was able to witness such a beautiful transformation.

The atmosphere she created in her classroom was unlike any teacher I’d ever had. If there’s one thing I could say, her class was never boring. Whether she was wearing a witch hat waving around a plastic sword – in correlation to Macbeth, or jamming out with an air guitar to Iron Maiden - pertaining to Dante’s Inferno. She could include anyone’s interest to make sure learning was fun for everyone. The love and compassion she has for teaching radiates off of
As a colleague, I have known Ponle Ojemakinde for three years. During her time spent as a student, Ponle has demonstrated to be a reliable, efficient, responsible and bright individual. Not only meeting deadlines and fulfilling commitments, Ponle has also continuously delivered work beyond excellence.
Ms. Bandsma is a type of student one notices from the start. She is quick to participate and I could count on her to respond whenever I needed class feedback. She also did not hesitate to offer help to students on her table, and reiterate the merits of completing their work if they fell behind. Her work was always timely and complete, and she promptly asked questions to make sure she understood concepts.
Waleska N. Comas Soto is my sister. She’s the second child of four daughters. I thought about her as an excellent student because I’ve seen her growth since a young age until now and I’ve admire the dedication she have always put to reach her goals.
Ms. Catcher is one of our favorite teachers because she is one of the most passionate teachers we've encountered during our educational careers. We've never seen teachers invest as much energy and passion into their students' progress as she does. She stays in her classroom every day until five -far later than most teachers- to conference with students, grade, chat, and brainstorm ideas. Her unparalleled devotion to her job and students warrants recognition.
Pocahontas and John Smith are viewed by many people as a couple who loved each other, a tale of a native american girl who saves an English explorer, and later falls in love with him.This story has been around for awhile, and became very popular when Disney came out with its movie Pocahontas, this movie shows how a romantic relationship forms between Pocahontas a Native American and John Smith an English explorer while tension rises between the English colonists and the Native Americans. The story of Pocahontas showed how strong love could be but in reality did it really? Was it really a love story? Did it really happen they way it was told? Pocahontas and John Smith were real people, but Disney”s Movie pocahontas did not display them the right way. Disney had put a rose colored filter to make
Monica is an exceptional student. Throughout her high school career she has strived to challenge herself academically by taking many dual credit and honors courses.

It would be unfair to the spirit of the movie not to mention Pocahontas’ remarkable efforts to prevent the conflict between her people and the settlers. She acts as a “frontier-dweller” in the sense that she learns how to communicate with John Smith and she puts herself forward to stop the war that was about to begin. “Those who can accept their diversity fully will hand on the torch between communities and cultures, and will be a kind of mortar joining together and strengthening the societies in which they live,” says Maalouf, and Pocahontas is successful in doing so. (Maalouf 2000) She saves John Smith by putting herself between her father and John Smith when he was about to be killed, and emphasizes the value of the human life and the destructiveness
Josie is a very active participant in all class discussions and activities. She contributes insightfully and often takes our discussions to another level. During one group activity, Josie was able to explain the properties of function reflections using sine and cosine as examples. She also is very supportive and inclusive of others and always listens thoughtfully to the contributions of her peers. Josie is the perfect person to get a group project rolling, but she also knows how to sit back and let others take the
Portia: Portia, being one of the main characters and the romantic heroine of the play, must be presented to the audience as a graceful, beautiful and intelligent person. We all know she’s beautiful, that needs no convincing. Portia is usually a fairly self-controlled person who likes to keep problems between her and her trustworthy lady-in-waiting, Nerissa. However there are certain times when she lets slip that she is an anxious person for example when Bassanio arrives at her mansion and is about to choose a casket. She has fallen in love with him and is having great difficulty in trying to conceal that fact. Her anxiety and confusion is what makes her lose her composure. Portia’s other appealing characteristic- probably one of the most apparent- is her graciousness, her amazing way of handling a situation with tact and
Although Pocahontas, daughter of a chief , she was a helpful and caring person to the Englishman. Pocahontas’ tribe called the English people tassantassas. Pocahontas was part of a Algonquian-speaking tribe. Pocahontas’ real name was actually Matoaka or Motowaka. People believe that Pocahontas’ name means “Little Snow Feather”.She was born in 1596 in Werowocomoco(in Virginia). She was the daughter of Chief Powhatan. Chief Powhatan ruled and watched over fourteen million people. He produced about eighty percent of the tribe’s food. Her mother is unknown, because Chief Powhatan followed the tradition of choosing his wife and sends her back her back to the village when she gives him her first child. Then he chooses another wife from the village. Chief Powhatan had more than a hundred wives and dozens of children. So Pocahontas spent her first four
