Week 20 - Student of the Week

Downsview Secondary School
Student of the Week
Week of March 20, 2017

Temidola A.


Downsview, for the week of March 9, 2017, your Student of the Week is Temidola A.
Temi is in the twelfth grade, and he will graduate soon.

Temi has lots of fans, starting with Mr Syal, his mentor in Robotics: “It’s been my pleasure teaching Temi for the last 3 years. Temi is a master of many talents. His contribution to the robotic team has made our team very successful at FRC tournaments. He has programmed, designed, and built our robot. He is the captain of our team. Most importantly he is a wonderful human being, he always has smile on his face and is willing to help others. Temi, you will be missed at Downsview. We all wish good luck to you next year with university.”

Ms Prinn adds: “Temidola is a lover of all things code. He is a master of numbers, programming and music. He was a joy to teach when he first arrived, and embraced the language of python quickly. I lent him one of my books on learning python, and every day he would come in ready to show me something he learned in the chapter last night. He loved the book so much he still uses it, and has lent it around to others in Robotics to learn the ways of Python. With his love of learning, there is nothing he can't accomplish. Congratulations Temidola!”

Hear more from Mr Pasian: “I was Temidola's Grade 10 Math Teacher. Temidola is hardworking, persistent, never gives up on a mathematical problem. He has competed in the math contests run here at Downsview and has done very well in these competitions.” And, from Ms Sulaj: “I had a great pleasure teaching Temidola in grade 11 and grade 12 Biology courses. He is an excellent student to have in class. He was genuinely interested in learning new concepts all the time and consistently has a positive attitude toward learning. He is responsible, reliable and volunteers always with a wide smile to help out his peers as the need arise. He was task-oriented, punctual, respectful, humble and enthusiastically involved in all the activities in biology classes and always a leader during group work. It has been a great journey seeing him grow and excel as a student and individual. Keep up your excellent work, Temidola, and best wishes in your future.”

Ms Birta, for whom Temi is a peer tutor, says: “His strong interest and involvement have led to excellent results.” And, Ms de Jersey, the teacher of tutors, agrees. “Temi is a lovely guy. He is kind, good to his friends and peers and not afraid to be enthusiastic and excited about learning. We should all have this quality. Also, when I saw Temi speaking with judges at the recent Robotics Competition at Durham College, I was impressed; he spoke with knowledge and confidence about our robot. I thought back to young Temi, who deservedly won this award in ninth grade, and thought of his growth. Then, he was engaged and hard-working. He has retained those fine qualities, but now, he is a leader. It did my teacher-heart good to see your strength on display, Temi. You represented Downsview extremely well.”

The word is out, Temidola. It’s your week and you have earned this honour through your leadership, your dedication to Robotics, and your fine character. We know you will achieve excellence in the future. How do we know this? We know, because you are achieving excellence now. You have laid the groundwork for your future success, and we are thrilled to see it happen. Congratulations, Temidola, on your win as Student of the Week.
