Staff Stars of the Month

Mr. Manuel Velez – by Hannah Elisabeth Rolle-Burnside, 6th grader

                Manuel Velez is one of the most valued staff members at this school.  So you should know about him as a person more than just being a school janitor.

                Mr. Velez worked at the high school for one year and has worked for six months here at WOK.  He applied online.  Mr. Velez grew up in New Jersey.  He knows how to balance his job and his family.

                On his leisure time he likes traveling with his family.  Mr. Velez has six children and an amazing wife.  One of his hobbies is to ride his bike.  Mr. Velez is a kind man and knows how to keep his personal life and work life separate.  Together we should make his job easier.  Don’t purposely leave something on the floor and even if it’s not yours, pick it up.  It would be a big help to Mr. Velez.  So when you see him tell him you appreciate him and his hard work because you should.

Staff Stars of the Month

Ms. Cheung - by Gabriela Silva, 7th grader

Ms. Cheung likes teaching 7th grade because she thinks the students are a little bit young but at the end of the year they change and keep growing. Her favorite subject is language arts. She always wanted to teach. She started to teach elementary school. When Ms. Cheung was younger she wanted to be a teacher. She has an older sister.

Ms. Cheung likes teaching and likes her job. Her least favorite subject is math. The book that Ms. Cheung is reading at the moment is The Black Thorn Key. Ms. Cheung’s least favorite books are non-fiction; she likes fiction books better. She went through 4 years of undergraduate and 2 years of graduate school.

                For Ms. Cheung college was fun and she got to try different classes.  She has been teaching for 7 years, 4 years here and 3 years somewhere else. Her major when she was in college was English. We are glad to have Ms. Cheung here as a teacher.
