Student Interview

Teacher Reflection

The student prioritizes his homework and his extracurricular pursuit of cup stacking. Without being asked to schedule homework completion or cup stacking practice after school, he set aside time and completed both. He demonstrated awareness of his educational and extracurricular responsibilities, thus taking responsibility for his learning. He recognized his actions affect whether he would reach the goals he set which were to do well in both school and cup stacking. As he said, “If you practice you get better.”

While many students are driven to school, this student decided to begin walking to school, without a parent. He explained his goals for walking were to walk with his sister, who was in Kindergarten, and to arrive at school on time. He takes responsibility for his travel to and from school and follows through on his commitments.
