In the past few months, Aiden has shown tremendous growth in his ability to seek solutions and ask for help when needed. I am proud of him for knowing when he needs help and for finding someone who can help him find the best solution or safe space.

Lola Florea

Resilient Learner of the Month nominated by Mrs. Schreiber.


I have been lucky enough to teach Lola for two years. Her ability to persevere and learn has been amazing to watch. She works so hard to master the concepts, not just for points or a the good grade, but to really understand the content and become smarter. She always asks for help when she needs it, but that is after she has attempted to find her mistake. She always tries her best to communicate her thinking and show her work which allows her to make great learning strides.

Andrew comes to Global Thinkers ready to learn every day. He serves as a model for other students and has emerged as a positive leader for others. Andrew goes out of his way every day to thank his teacher at the end of class. Andrew is an excellent model of what it is to be kind and empathetic.
