Students of the Month

Melodie Hughes

Weber High School

During the 2nd week of school, we were discussing a “you try” math problem, and Melodie volunteered to the class that she got the problem wrong. She then explained why she got the problem wrong and howto correct her mistake. I thought her volunteering this information was very risky as it is hard to know how you will be perceived by your peers. It is often difficult for students to admit when they are wrong. Melodie provided a great opportunity for discussion,and numerous students realized they had made the same error.It was a very valuable learning experience for the entire class,and I very much appreciate her boldness and willingness to express herself

Aubry Dixon

North Ogden Jr. High School

I am so excited to nominate Aubry as student of the month. Aubry is such a hard worker in my math class. She comes prepared to learn and does her work everyday. Aubry is the type of student that you wish for in math class. She is so excited to learn every day and so friendly. If she does not understand the material, she asks for help in learning how to do the problems. Every day, Aubry comes to class with a smile. Thank you Aubry for making my day brighter. Good luck in all your future endeavors in life.
