BYMS Social Studies Student of the Week: Maddie Freund

“I was excited and surprised when I got chosen for student of the week,” stated Maddie Freund. a BYMS 7th grader who has been chosen  by Mr. Shen as the “BYMS Social Studies Student of the week.”

“Maddie is a very inquisitive and enthusiastic student.  I can always count on her to ask good questions that benefit the whole of the group.  In addition, she has a great sense of humor and helps make the class a fun place to learn,” said Mr. Shen.

According to Mr. Shen, Maddie recently completed an extra credit project video with Justin Zhao and Emily Ito that was hilarious and well done.  It was obvious they had fun working on the project while showing off their knowledge of the material.

“I like how Maddie is not afraid to ask for clarification on a point that she doesn’t understand.  She isn’t self conscious about wanting to fully understand a topic and I think a lot of seventh graders can learn from that desire to attain greater comprehension,” explained Mr. Shen.
