Starting this year, the BHS English Department will highlight a student of the month to recognize a student’s efforts and accomplishments in his or her English class. We are pleased to announce our October winner, Joe Barbieri.
Joe is a sophomore in an honors Introduction to Literature class, and he is also enrolled in Journalism II. We asked both of his English teachers to weigh in on his performance.
From Mrs. McKee (sophomore English): One of Joe’s many strengths in Sophomore English is his versatility; he approaches all assignments (seminar, writing, quizzes) with the same degree of sedulousness. Joe began the year with an A in his summer reading assignments, and has sustained this level of achievement throughout term one. He has strong convictions and isn’t afraid to take a stand for what he believes in. Joe accomplishes all this while being consistently affable and maintaining a serene demeanor.
From Ms. Graham (Journalism): This year is Joe Barbieri’s second year serving as a staff writer on the school newspaper The Devil’s Advocate. He will also be taking on the role of editor of the opinion section this year. His work ethic and thoughtfulness made him an excellent candidate for the position.
