This week I had the honor of being in attendance for a recognition ceremony for one of my students. His classroom teacher wrote this explanation as to why this young man was deserving of the prestigious Wake County Student Spotlight Award:
“Sarhtee is an energetic and an eager-to-learn student. Sarhtee had to overcome his native language of Mandarin when moving to North Carolina a few years ago from Thailand. In 4th grade, when Sar Htee didn’t have homework, he would get disappointed and ask the teacher to assign him homework, even on weekends and over track-out. He absolutely loves to be challenged and is willing and eager to try anything new and challenging. His strengths are in math and science, but also does very well in reading and writing. Sarhtee also has an artistic talent and his artwork is one of only 15 pieces being chosen to represent Wake County art students (K-12) next week at the North Carolina Art Educators Association Conference (NCAEA).”
Good job Sarhtee, we're all proud of you!
