Helen Guy is an awesome team player, she is always willing to lend a helping hand, goes above and beyond for her coworkers, students, and parents. She is truly passionate about serving special education students and goes above and beyond to ensure that her students’ social emotional and academic needs are met. She consistently communicates with her students’ parents and their general education teachers so that everyone is aware of how the students are performing and behaving. During the COVID period, she went out of her way to provide food for one of her students’ families who did not have transportation to the Food Bank and they were so appreciative!
Maya Bueno has been an amazing student in our 3rd grade Dual Language class here at Freedom Elementary. She is such a positive light in our school. Mr. Perez, her teacher says, “Maya is a hard working student. She is meticulous and makes sure her work is complete and correct.” He goes on to say, “She is friendly and well liked by her peers.” Maya also showed strong leadership skills. She was an active member of our Jr. Lighthouse Student Leadership group. Maya’s personal hobbies include, dance, bike riding, soccer, and watching movies. Congratulations on being our Cardinal of the week!
