Vera, Class of 2019

June 9, 2019 | Abby Liu

A challenging curriculum and a fresh start are two things that Vera’s looking forward to at the Dwight Englewood School next year. After 11 years of learning at Mustard Seed School, she feels ready to put her skills and abilities to good use in high school.

Vera likes to think outside of the box. In class or group discussions, she often has an opinion that stands out. Her unique ideas and management skills have grown over time. She’s become a strong leader, especially as a member of the MSS Service Team.

What has Vera learned at MSS? To speak up for her beliefs. Be a strong advocate. See both sides of an argument. Listen. Contribute.

Vera would like to thank her sixth grade teacher, Ms. Thompson, for encouraging her to work hard in every subject. This is a lesson that Vera will always carry with her.

To all future students, Vera would like to say: don’t worry. MSS is a welcoming place. Enjoy your time there. Before you know it, you’ll be graduating!
