LUCA T. – ART (nominated by Mr. Ehmka)

“I have known Luca for two years and he has come so far both artistically and socially during that time. He always greets me in the morning with a thoughtful hello and knows the classroom expectations, grabs his project and gets straight to work. His ad-libbing during the morning announcements for the fun fact of the day is awesome! When I first met Luca he was extremely reluctant to allow me to help him with his projects and to accept my advice. Now he routinely self-advocates, asks questions, and offers his input within our classroom discussions. He truly is a big part of our classroom environment and has made great progress this year with his artistic choices and willingness to try new things even volunteering to go first during our in-class critique. I really am thankful to have Luca in multiple classes throughout my day. Cheers -- Mr Ehmka!”

 

BODEN T. – LANGUAGE ARTS (nominated by Mr. Palko)
