Meet Angel, 2017 Univision Student of the Week

Introducing Univision Arizona Student of the Week was Angel! Angel has attended Heard School since kindergarten. He’s demonstrated tremendous academic success, beginning as an ELL student and eventually transitioning to mainstream classrooms. He says his teachers push him to succeed and give him great advice. His favorite teacher was Ms. Chang.

Angel will attend Thunderbird High School in the fall, where he looks forward to participating in the athletic programs. Angel is an excellent student athlete who loves to play soccer and softball. Some of his favorite memories are of his mom coming to games, because she loved to watch him play. Unfortunately, Angel’s mom passed away last December. Angel says “I know she is looking down on me, cheering me on.”

Well done, Angel. We admire your courage, perseverance and optimism in all the things you do.
