Mathias White (AKA Tay Tay) is the Knight of the Month for January
Nominated by Ms. Stafford
Tay Tay, has been a lifesaver to our 3rd hour. We have a student who speaks almost exclusively in Spanish and is trying to learn despite this learning challenge. From day one, Tay Tay stepped up indicating that he could help interpret for them. On a daily basis, he helps me explain lessons, clarify responses, and aid this student in learning. It is impressive to watch him code switch, but more impressive is his selfless attitude in ensuring that his classmates are learning. Tay Tay asks questions constantly to ensure he is doing assignments correctly, emails when he is absent to make sure he knows what the make-up work is, and demonstrates an attitude of scholarship throughout the class. He is kind, unselfish, and focused on scholarship and learning; all characteristics of a Knight.
