TEC Student of the Month Award

May 2016 - Peggy Reuler


With an easygoing and flexible attitude that is a real boon for learning a foreign language, Peggy helps create an especially convivial atmosphere in the twice-weekly group she’s continued in for a full year. Always early to class with a smile on her face and her detailed homework in hand, her preparedness has helped her make impressive progress. A retired educator who’s motivated in part by wanderlust and love of travel, a genuine interest in absorbing the cultural aspects of language is everpresent in her approach to learning. We’re grateful to count Peggy as part of our community at Tierra and look forward to finding out where this adventurous spirit will explore next as she continues to polish her Spanish skills!

April 2016 - Tom DeBeauchamp

 

A gem of a student, Tom’s amiable nature renders him a fantastic classmate who infuses the class environment with humor and camaraderie. Utterly dedicated to his studies, he’s almost never missed a class session in all of the courses he’s taken continuously since starting in January 2015. His wit and creativity shine in his written homework assignments, which are always highly original and entertaining. As concerned about his class as a whole as he is about his own learning, his open questions and conversation stimuli encourage everyone to actively participate. Taking advantage of every opportunity to engage with Spanish-speakers and use his blossoming skills, Tom exemplifies the great progress that can be achieved when studying a second language with gumption.

 

March 2016 - Daniel Morgan & Jess Youngberg

A couple whose dream of travel has motivated them to expand their Spanish skills, Daniel and Jess’ impressive dedication to their studies at Tierra has merited a double-nomination! Extremely diligent students, they both attend class with extraordinary consistency and make completing all assignments a high priority; they come to their respective classes ready to ask questions and build a solid understanding of the concepts studied.  As they aspire to spend a significant amount of time traveling and perhaps living in Latin America, their genuine interest motivates them to soak in cultural knowledge as they sharpen their language skills. We honor Jess and Daniel’s hard work and look forward to watching them turn their dreams into reality!

February 2016 - Eduardo McLean

 

A hard-working and focused student, Eduardo has achieved great success since beginning his studies at Tierra. Originally from Panama, he moved to the U.S. as a child and is now working to recuperate his first language, particularly so that he can communicate with the many members of his family who still live there. Often enrolling in two simultaneous once-weekly courses, Eduardo is a notably dedicated student who makes a great effort at every step along his learning journey. Patient and kind, Eduardo is a valued member of our community and we look forward to seeing him continue to remaster the language of his youth and deepen his connection with his family and heritage.
