Mary Thang from North Middle School in Aurora is April’s Student of the Month! Mary is in the 6th grade and has been enrolled in KidsTek since the beginning of the school year, her first year in middle school.
Mary always has a positive attitude and a smile on her face. “Mary is an absolute delight to have in my class,” says KidsTek instructor, Meme Loftin, “She is always focused and works hard on the projects.” Mary’s favorite KidsTek assignment has been when the students were asked to make cards for the kids at Children’s Hospital.
Mary and her family moved here four years ago from Burma. She and her sister started teaching themselves at a young age how to speak English. Mary’s favorite school subjects are reading and writing. When she’s not busy in school and extracurricular activities, Mary’s hobbies include roller skating and swimming.
