Student of the Week: Fiona Austin

This week students presented their "Math in My Career" projects. They were to give a short presentation on what they want to be when they grow up and how math is used in that career. I did this so that the students could find meaning and understand why they need math to succeed in the future.

While all the students did WONDERFUL, Fiona Austin in Ms. Then's homeroom went above and beyond showing great effort and excitement for this project.

Below are a few photos from her project.

She is an excellent student who demonstrates the A.R.T.S behavior everyday and is always bringing a lot fun and personality to the class.
