Downsview Secondary School
Student of the Week
Week of November 5, 2018
Downsview, for the week of November 5th, your Student of the week is Tianna B.
Tianna is in the twelfth grade at Downsview.
Ms Danner, Tianna’s proud teacher has this to say: “I nominate Tianna Bennett. She has come out of her shell and is asserting herself within the program. She is taking on a leadership role in helping her peers. Tianna has turned from a timid and shy little girl, to an outgoing and vocal young woman. She has found her voice and will share her opinions freely. Tianna is now confident enough to participate in Forest Valley and the Thriller dance. She is also responsible enough to manage her time and get to dance practice on her own and without reminders.”
The other adults in room 127 enthusiastically add their voices to the praise about this young woman. Hear this, from Ms Orr: “Tianna has been beyond a pleasure to teach. She is kind-hearted, she is a classroom leader and she has a great sense of humour. Tianna has grown – she is so expressive now, and I love to hear her. Tianna did an amazing job on Halloween dancing for Thriller. We are so proud of her.”
Skye adds Tianna-accolades with this: “Tianna is a team-player, always there to help. The first thing she does when she gets off the bus is give a big smile and high fives.”
Great attitude, involved, growing as a person, kind? The strengths in Tianna’s character read as a template for, quite simply, being a good human being. We could all take a page from your book, Tianna. Thank you for all you give, and congratulations on your win as Student of the Week.
