Ellarose LeBeau – Collaboration: “Ellarose is currently enrolled in the Media Communications course and has been a true example of collaboration,” says teacher Mr. Bugenhagen. “Without hesitation, she enters the room with a smile each day and begins planning the recordings for morning announcements. Even though we rotate rolls within the class, she always supports her fellow classmates and assists them where she can once her own assigned tasks are completed. She demonstrates leadership skills by organizing her thoughts and communicating effectively with her peers. She is always willing to listen to the thoughts and opinions of others while keeping the current goal in mind. Her constructive criticism is always well received while her individual skillsets continue to improve as she learns from her critiques from the teacher and her peers.”
