Congratulations Evy Marmon for being nominated by Tina Hamm as HomeTech’s student of the month! Mrs. Hamm said, “Evy is most deserving of this recognition due to her benevolent, astute contributions in our English 9 class. One requirement of our poetry unit is to share original compositions aloud to the class. Needless to say, it's a bit scary for teenagers to share anything they have written, especially a piece of poetry! Then there's Evy. She is a wizard with words and is not afraid to use them! Beyond sharing her own fabulous poetry, she was chosen by her peers to give feedback on the poems that they shared. Evy listened carefully to each one and then spoke with passion and purpose about what that poet did well. She made poetry feel like a risk worth taking. She made it fun. Evy is a wonderful team-player and it's a pleasure to have her in class.” Thank you Evy for being the wonderful young person you are! Thank you to Red Lion Pizza in Magalia for supporting HomeTech's students' successes by giving them a personal pizza and soda!

Congratulations Jayden Stevens for being chosen as HomeTech’s Student of the Month! Danielle DiPiertro-Hawkins speaks not only for herself but for other teachers at HomeTech when she says, “It’s my pleasure to nominate Jayden for recognition of his leadership qualities this year. As a student in my Paradise Outreach and Advanced Culinary classes, he sets those around him at ease with his confidence and leads by example. He makes others feel comfortable through his calm yet excitable presence and enjoys helping others. This Fall, Jayden volunteered to take part in the Phoenix 5K fundraiser. He doesn’t run regularly and it was to be his first race, but he participated with enthusiasm! He also volunteered to be on HomeTech’s Charter School renewal committee, involving a long process of meetings, reflective discussions, and goal setting. Outside of school, Jayden regularly volunteers at events associated with the veterans and veterans' hall. I’ve enjoyed having Jayden as a student and seeing his positive influence on others. I know that everyone at Hometech appreciates his contributions.” We really do!! Congratulations Jayden and Merry Christmas!

Leadership qualities is what HomeTech’s teachers looked for in nominating Student of the Month, and Danielle DiPietro-Hawkins didn’t hesitate to nominate Ben Buckhout for several reasons: “Throughout the past semester as a student in my Paradise Outreach class, Ben Buckhout has continually demonstrated qualities of a leader. He listens intently to instructions, and follows them diligently. He's interested in doing things that may be uncomfortable because he wants to grow. For example, when I asked the students to call local high schools to inquire about their prom dates, Ben immediately volunteered. He also volunteered to take part in the Phoenix 5K fundraiser this Fall, even though he's not an avid runner and it was to be his first race. He has stellar grades, and a job outside of school, which demonstrates his motivation and responsibility. Because of these leadership qualities, Ben was asked to be the student representative at HomeTech's school board meetings. Lastly, Ben volunteered to be on HomeTech's charter school renewal committee in order to assist the school in an arduous process. It's been a pleasure to get to know Ben this year. I know that he will have much success in life and will be able to meet the goals that he sets for himself.” Congratulations Ben and Merry Christmas!

Congratulations Aroara Moon for being nominated by Aquina Seher as HomeTech’s Student of the Month! Aquina said, “Aroara has regularly exhibited leadership qualities in elementary enrichment and other classes. Every time there is a new or slightly nervous student in our enrichment group, she reassures the student and is very friendly, such that the student becomes more comfortable. Aroara includes everyone in our small group and even praises absent students to those who are in class (if those students have never met before). I am grateful for her taking the initiative to foster positive interactions with peers!” Again, Congratulations Aroara!
