Student of the Month
“Karla Hernandez helped with translating directions to students in the classroom when there was no ELL support and the students spoke little to no English. She also led these students on a couple of the group assignments at the beginning of the semester. She made the class 100% better had she not been there to take initiative to assist both the teacher and the students.” (Not pictured.)
“Carlos Avalos-Sanchez started a couple of days after the semester and speaks almost no English, but has continually worked to understand the material which is either presented in English or translated Spanish which is not always easy for Spanish Speaking students to deal with. He uses the materials that have been handed to him as much as possible and follows along when there is a lecture. He is using every available resource to be successful.”
“Brett Cates is the president of Drama Club and Thespians. He planned and organized the Drama Club for the freshmen orientation, homecoming parade, tailgating event and Italian Fest booth. For the fall play, Brett was a fantastic lead, Dracula. But, he also built the set, drove to SIUE to get set pieces, props, and costumes, organized the students, hauled and unloaded our set to and from the Miner’s, and was always the last to leave.”
