English-  Jazzmyn Ewing-  “I have had the privilege to teach Jazzmyn Ewing for the last two years, and I am incredibly impressed with her sparkling personality and tenacity. She stands out as an excellent student for several reasons: First, Jazzmyn always goes above and beyond in Journalism class. She quickly picked up video editing and is a great leader in class. She spends time outside of class to make sure our publications are successful.  In English Class, Jazzmyn truly desires to improve her skills and learn as much as possible. Last year during quarantine, she wrote an extra essay just to improve her skills for the ACTs.  She often comes to my classroom to find more novels to read, and she always has interesting ideas to share in class. I have seen her grow in her communication and writing skills, and her peers look to her as a leader. Jazzmyn consistently has her work done on time, and it is done to the best of her ability every time. I am certain Jazzmyn will go on to be successful in whatever she sets her mind to do!”  Ms. Calvery
