A pair of 8th grade students, Riley Kim and Dylan Gendron were selected as Options Students of the Month for February at the Noblesville campus.
Still new to Options, Riley enrolled in January 2019 and her hobbies include soccer and art, with a strong passion for painting and drawing.
Riley’s favorite thing about Options is English Specialist Kimberly Massaud because of how much she helps her students and her ability to make English, and other subjects, exciting to anyone in her class.
Naturally, Riley’s favorite class is art because of her love for the subject.
Her biggest improvement since starting classes at Options can be seen in her grades, and she says the teachers have played a major role in that change because of their approach to the materials. For Riley, it helps that the teachers don’t expect the students to memorize the material, but instead focus on the material being learned.
Now in his second academic year at Options, Dylan likes to spend his free time playing video games, hanging out with friends and playing sports.
His passion for sports has led to Physical Education being his favorite subject because he is able to be active.
For Dylan, his favorite thing about Options is Health & Physical Education Specialist Dan Cousineau because he teaches his favorite subject.
With help from his teachers, Dylan has improved greatly in Math and English and enjoys those subjects more now than he ever did in the past. He is grateful for how each teacher approaches the course material in order to ensure that everything is retained.
Still a few years away from graduating high school, Riley & Dylan are still working to determine what they want to pursue after their days in the classroom are done.
