Jazmine participated in the 2014 Summer Tutoring Program and was this recipient of The Robert E. Hatch Award for Most Improved Student, which is presented to a student who has shown remarkable development in work accomplishments, social interactions, attitude, and academic assessment.
At the beginning of the summer, Jazmine would come into the room with her head hung down and wouldn’t look at anyone. She always had a nervous look on her face. During reading comprehension class at the end of each day her tutor said she was very timid and didn’t want to read aloud in front of the group. By the end of summer school she wanted to read aloud to the group. She projected her voice and was willing to read any time her turn came around.
