“This student enjoys winning. Everyday is a new competition for him whether he is competing against his classmates in a game of basketball at recess or competing with him self to beat his goal in rocket math. He is usually the first student in the class to pass off sight words or math facts because of his competitive nature. Although he is competitive, he understands it is more important to be correct rather than be first. He is able to find the appropriate balance between speed and accuracy to push himself to the front of our class in most areas.”
