For Marc Pardee, teacher, how does this student’s exemplary behavior illustrate the goals your school is pursuing? Madelyn has met every new challenge this semester with creativity, and perseverance. She regularly pushes herself outside of her comfort zone towards extremely difficult content, and as a result develops a clever and unique solution to any problem she is presented with. She shows a tremendous amount of respect to everyone she meets and goes out of her way to help others. Her hard work, creativity and dedication to her education have resulted in a very successful semester in Aerospace. Great work Maddie!
