Teacher Comments: Chosen by the Technology Department-
Mrs. Womack, his advanced graphic design teacher, said “I have enjoyed teaching David Tsan. David is definitely an over achiever. He goes way beyond what is expected of him. He is always taking on extra duties and in his spare time in class creates extra projects. He and 3 of his friends made and recorded a music video in their spare time that was not a classroom assignment. He asked if he could paint ceiling tiles for my classroom depicting our technology software. He also has designed the T-shirt logos for if not all, most of our school organizations this year. He is organized, creative and a very hard worker.David will do well in college and any career he chooses to take on.”
Mrs. Windham, his art teacher, said “David is a very bright and talented young man who excels in every class he takes. (And those classes are all honors classes, advanced classes or dual credit classes). I have had him in art for three years and he has worked hard and improved each year to the point where he is winning contests and has achieved an extremely high skill level. He is striving to be the first in his family to attend college. I’m sure he’ll receive many scholarships so that he can achieve that goal. Any college would be proud to have this fine young man!!
He is a truly unique, bright and talented student and I can’t say enough good about him!”
Mrs. Granger, his dual credit facilitator, said “David has to deal with someone who is somewhat computer illiterate, me. He is always helping me with problems that I run across dealing with computers. I can always count on him to help my ISS students with Math assignments when they have questions. He is just a great all-around student.”
Mrs. Bellard, his technology teacher said “I have taught David Tsan multiple computer courses over the last several years. He has performed above expectations in his classroom involvement. From our classroom time together, I would describe David as a hard working and intelligent young man. I have also sponsored David in the University Interscholastic League’s Computer Applications event for three years. He has been extremely successful at this difficult contest. His drive and determination make him the ideal competitor. David is a responsible and mature young man that has a very bright future.”
Mr. Cascio, his dual credit English teacher, said “I always enjoy having David in one of my classes. He is an industrious student, always ready to take on a challenge, master it and move on….
He has made great strides this year in English IV-Dual Credit. “
