School Board Recognition: Maddie WhiteMaddie White is the kind of student every teacher dreams about having. When I asked her former teachers to describe her, they used words like shining, delightful, diligent, kind, inclusive, and extraordinary. When I asked classmates the same question, they said caring, thoughtful, selfless, intelligent, creative, brave, funny, spunky, tall, generous, a little bit intimidating, and unique. I have been lucky enough to be Maddie’s teacher twice now, once in third and now in sixth, and I can attest to the fact that she is all those things and so much more.  

Maddie is a one-of-a-kind student who never hesitates to help others. She is willing to help others in the classroom and has become one of the “go-to tutors.” When I asked Maddie what she most wanted people to know about her, she was helpful. She has a big heart for serving others and is generous with her time, attention, and talents. An Alamo student since kindergarten, she goes out of her way to help others, no matter who is in need and the task. 

She is incredibly bright but is humble about it. She does not brag or boast about her grades but quietly and diligently goes about each day, always trying to give her best. She contributes to class conversations and discussions and never leaves her teacher hanging with no volunteers to call on. Even though she is an excellent reader and has met her AR goal every time Maddie has had one, she loves math most of all because it is fun, and she knows she is good at it.
Not only does Maddie currently play the violin, but she has been playing volleyball since third grade. 
Her favorite part of volleyball is serving because she likes feeling powerful. This is her favorite of all her hobbies, including reading, coloring, and sewing boo-boo packs to sell at craft fairs.

When she becomes an adult, Maddie hopes to become a NASA engineer. In that position, she would like to help design the next generation of rovers to explore other planets. She isn’t yet sure where she would like to go to college but hopes to find a school to help her achieve this goal. 

I cannot think of a better choice to represent Alamo School as an outstanding sixth grader. We are fortunate as a school and district to have Maddie White as an Eagle. Congratulations Maddie!
