He speaks Mandarin at home. Was in the ELL program but tested out when entering high
Dylan school. Asks thought provoking questions. Very confident in his science classes, which has
provoked an instance of frustrated feelings from a female peer.
Very polite and hard working student, but needs extra help practicing the skills and concepts.
He has come in for the past couple weeks for after school help and is getting hooked up with a
Nico
peer tutor. He is always very gracious and thankful for my help and the extra help is paying off
as he is learning from and fixing his mistakes.
Very outgoing, confident young lady. Involved in ASB. Aware of Nicos needs and spends
time coaching him through warm-ups at times. At times I feel like she tries to be buddy-buddy

Very sharp girl. She raises her and is always on task so she is safe to cold call on. She and Judy

High achiever, but puts a lot of work into maintaining her success. She asks questions as I walk

Well-liked by her peers. Honestly do not know much about Lauryn. I plan to move her towards

Good student but would probably perform well towards the front of the room rather than at the
lab table by the door. Chats off topic with Kelcie sometimes. Shows average understanding of

the course material, but also comes in to review his test for retakes and always shows
improvement.

Kelcie away from cold calls. She enjoys labs and shows an above average understanding of the
material on tests. I plan to move her towards the front to get to know her as well.
She is one of my lowest students this semester. She is shy and quiet, and in talking to her
parents she has never been a self-advocate. Since reaching out to her parents she has been

Nikita
SPED: with IEP was falling asleep in class, right after lunch, pretty consistently for a couple weeks, but has
been much more alert. She is on basketball and has a lot of friends and much more confidence
around her friends than her chemistry classmates.
Very high academics. He almost always has his hand up and when I say, discuss with your
partner he gives a little eye roll like he would rather share his thought and move on. He
Junu GATE
definitely needs and deserves differentiation to avoid him getting bored and keep sparking his
interest in science.
She is on the basketball team and has a lot of friends in the class and on campus. She has a big
personality, but is respectful in class and keeps herself in check when she gets overly excited.
Layla
She comes in for help after school on labs and test reviews and stays until she really has an
understanding of the material.
She also has lots of friends in the class, but keeps focused. Has had to miss a lot of class for
Lilly basketball this semester, but always gets herself caught up and takes responsibility for her
learning.
He is a freshman and it is evident. He is physically smaller and not very organized. I just
recommended him for AVID and I think it would help teach him organization and study skills.
Nicholas
When cold calling he sometimes does not know what the question was and is confused as to
what my exact instructions were at times.
She is a mature girl and has a serious tone to her. But she approaches me with questions as
Riley necessary. Has missed days here and there and always checks in regarding how and when to
make assignments up.
She is distracted by her lab mates and her phone often, and does not tend to have an answer to
Sophia GATE my questions. She is also missing lab instructions from time to time and has an air of confusion.
She would benefit from a seat in the front of the class and a stricter phone policy.

how social he is on campus.

Justin is well-liked by his peers and seems to have a healthy social life. He is not confident in
his chemistry understanding and usually looks to his partner, Adam, when called on. He calls
Justin SPED: with IEP
me over to help answer questions once in a while, but does not reach out for extra assistance as
is outlined in his IEP. He comes in for retakes and seems to correct his mistakes decently.
I had her brother last semester and both students are very polite and a pleasure to have in class.
Tylar I think she and Adrian, her partner, are in a relationship since sitting next to each other, so they
love helping each other and stay on task. She has an average understanding of the material.
He is a conscientious student as well. He is on the hockey team, and has had to miss class but
Adrian always checks in regarding what he did and will miss. He has been improving in his
engagement and understanding since sitting in the front of the class.
Brooke has been absent A LOT this semester. I believe she has been ditching my 3rd period
class as she has a 4th period offroll. She had a stoic face for the first couple months but seems

assignments and missed lectures.
Jenny is very engaged and is well-liked. She raises her hand a lot and is always on task. She is a

bit of a worrier, but just shows that she takes her education and grades seriously.
He is the son of another teacher on campus who checks in on Makaiah regularly. Makaiah
seems to put on a show that he is really trying but I dont buy it. He does need extra support
Makaiah and sometimes shows up for that opportunity. He shows very minimal understanding of the
content on the assessments, and when we go over the test together large gaps in his learning are
revealed. He needs to spend more time going over notes and concepts.
Violet is Makaiahs girlfriend and she shows similar confusion when they come in for help, but
she seems to get the concept after an additional round of explanations, and her academic
success class seems to really help her in asking the questions that she needs. She broke her leg
Violet
in a couple places at a WHS game and has been in and out of surgeries, wheel-chairs and casts.
She is patient with herself as she is getting caught up and she will recover physically and
academically just fine.
