For the month of February, Zoe Daniels and Seth Anderson were selected as the Students of the Month for the Carmel campus of Options.
Zoe Daniels, an 11th grade student, has been enrolled at Options since August 2017. In her free time, Zoe enjoys food, spending time with her cat, shopping, traveling and watching movies.
Her favorite things about Options are the people and the teachers, because they help create a very welcoming atmosphere. Her favorite subject is Integrated Chemistry and Physics because it is a balanced mix of challenging, but fun. The case studies are one of her favorite aspects of the course material.
Since enrolling at Options, Zoe has seen herself improve in how she interacts with friends, classmates and teachers. She has also become more comfortable in being an advocate for herself.
When it comes to describing what Options teachers provide, Zoe appreciates the level of respect that teachers have for all Options students. They don’t just teach the classes, but also put time towards building relationships with each student.
After high school, Zoe plans on attending college and aspires to be an advertising executive and own a Starbucks franchise. She is currently thinking about attending college in Las Vegas.
A 10th grader, Seth Anderson has been an Options student since August 2018. With a passion for music, Seth enjoys playing guitar and drums in his spare time.
His favorite part of Options is the administration and teachers because of how much they care about the students. Current Events is his favorite school subject because of how it involves healthy debating about real-world issues.
For Seth, the area that has seen the most improvement since he enrolled at Options are his grades.
The difference that Seth sees in Options teachers is that they are willing to assist students instead of immediately giving them a poor grade on an assignment.
He is currently still deciding on plans after high school.
