Dominic De la Terra was chosen by Mr. Shen, a Gear Up teacher, for student of the week. When he was chosen, he was very shocked and his mind was blown, “when I got this news,” Dominic said. 

 

Dominic, “is kind and conscientious and he has a way of bringing out the best in those around him,” Mr. Shen stated. Dominic enjoys Shen’s class very much, he finds that, “if I ever need help with anything, I can get help.” He also enjoys working with the peers around him. “He is a generous person and a good friend to his peers,” Mr. Shen stated.

 

“Dom consistently tries hard to contribute to the class. He makes the whole class better by being there,” Mr. Shen said.  He finds that talking about personal things on circle days is the hardest part of that class. Many believe that Dom has traits of a leader. He, “is kind and inclusive to others. He not only tries to do well in his classes, but to be a good person as well.”
