Brilynn is an all-around great student! She always participates in class discussion, gets her work done on time, and is a sincere student. She is a role model to her peers and is always willing to help them if they do not understand. Brilynn has a mathematical mind, she asks questions to deepen her understanding of the content and makes connections. She was in the high 90’s both quarter one and quarter two. Brilynn has great determination and perseverance. Last quarter she learned about factoring quadratics, which is a tricky concept. She never gave up and continued to ask questions until she understood. She has many great qualities that every teacher looks for in a student. It is a pleasure to have her in my class and I look forward to seeing how she continues to grow as a student.
