NAME Stephanie Villalobos
SCHOOL Fox Chase Elementary
WHAT MAKES HER A KID WHO CARES Stephanie is a tender-hearted and thoughtful student who has demonstrated all six pillars of character from the beginning of the year. However, caring is the most salient pillar she models each and every day.
Stephanie shows caring in different ways to those she interacts with during the school day. She always shares her snack, her pencil sharpener and anything else someone might need. She's always the first to volunteer in the classroom. Her watchful ways keep her attentive to the needs of others.
In addition, Stephanie also demonstrates caring by valuing her relationships with her peers. She will make sure that each classmates voice is heard. It matters to her how her friends feel and what they think. In other words, Stephanie is very conscientious about the classroom climate in which we all learn together. She is the glue and adhesive that binds our class as a real caring community of learners.
Once again, it is with great pleasure and pride to nominate one of my students here at Fox Chase Elementary. Stephanie's caring personality and big-hearted gestures impact the lives of those of us who work together, learn together and grow together each and every day in 3" grade. Stephanie has expressed a repeated interest in becoming a teacher one day. It is this nominators opinion that she already possesses the most important character trait of all for that respectable career choice.
STEPHANIE WAS A RECENT CHARACTER COUNTS AWARD RECIPIENT. SHE WAS NOMINATED FOR THAT AWARD BY HER TEACHER, WHO WROTE THE ABOVE ESSAY.
