HomeTech’s Student of the Month Hayden Stromsoe was selected by Danielle DiPietro-Hawkins. Danielle said, “It's my pleasure to nominate Hayden for exhibiting this month's character trait of integrity. As a student in my Advanced Culinary class this past year, I continue to appreciate Hayden's energy and creativity, which he channels into every cooking project that we do. He's methodical and careful about the preparation process; once he spent ten minutes grating a cinnamon stick because we had run out of powdered cinnamon and needed it for the recipe! Hayden's integrity has been evident to me through his frequent volunteering to perform tasks that most students don't enjoy, such as laboring over the hot stove and frying food, and washing dishes. Hayden treats those around him with kindness and respect, and everyone at Hometech appreciates his sincere and earnest character.” Way to go Hayden! Red Lion Pizza in Magalia congratulates you as well Hayden and is giving you a personal pizza and drink! Thank you Red Lion Pizza for supporting student successes!

Congratulations Caleb Heyrman for being chosen as HomeTech Student of the Month by your teacher Danya Reynolds. Danya said, “For the character trait Resiliency, I have chosen to nominate Caleb Heyrman. Caleb has displayed a significant amount of personal growth since he has been at HomeTech. He is a smart young man and works well in a one on one learning environment. He recently switched to full independent study, and has realized that it is difficult to complete all the work without having classroom support. He is learning that he really benefits by seeking additional help from his subject area teachers. He was just in my office last week and he was truly a pleasure to work with! He was grateful for my help and most importantly, he knew how to complete the task at hand and was able to finish it on his own. Caleb is a truly resilient individual. He cares about his learning and he really tries to understand the content, even when it becomes difficult.” Thank you to Red Lion Pizza in Magalia for supporting HomeTech's students' successes by giving them a personal pizza and soda!

Sierra Hambey is so well-regarded at HomeTech that she was nominated by two teachers for HomeTech's Student of the Month! Danya Reynolds said, “I have had Sierra in many of my classes at HomeTech, and this year I had the privilege of coaching her on HomeTech’s very first swim team! Sierra is a natural leader. In class she sets high standards for herself. She has every quality of an exceptional student and is a great role model for her fellow classmates. In the pool she works hard. She never complains about a difficult set. She helps her teammates keep time intervals during practice and she is always willing to demonstrate swimming skills. At swim meets, she makes sure her teammates make it behind the blocks and she cheers for them during their races. She is the first to volunteer to help with anything she can. Even though we didn’t name a team captain this year, Sierra has earned that title.” English teacher Tina Hamm said, “Great leadership begins with great people. Sierra inspires others by being her most authentic and dynamic self. She has learned over the years to take risks and to embrace challenges. She has developed into a brave young woman who is not afraid to stand up for what she believes and advocates for change in her world. Sierra believes in her own self worth. Her positivity, intelligence, and confidence makes her a trustworthy leader worth emulating.” Thank you to Red Lion Pizza in Magalia for supporting HomeTech's students' successes by giving them a personal pizza and soda!
