Student Spotlight-Oscar Cornejo
Oscar Cornejo, student at Cecil Sly Elementary, is the reason teachers want to teach. He is the remarkable student who listens to every word, participates in every discussion, and cheers on every classmate. He has what all teachers dream of in a phenomenal student, and that is grit. You will never hear Oscar say, “I don’t get it?!” Nor, will you ever see him give up. If he does not understand a concept, or is confused on a task, he never cries out, but quietly works, works, works until that new skill is mastered. His darling smile lights up our room and his eyes dance with such warmth and kindness that we all feel very lucky to have him as our student. Thank you Oscar, for being so perfectly YOU!
