Grade 12--Laura Frank and Allie Seth Laura and Allie are being recog- nized for their work with the Read- ing Lab during first semester. Both students were seen working hard to help Kimball Area High School students become stronger readers. Reading Lab Director Tabitha Mortenson writes, "Both Allie and Laura have done a fantas- tic job working with the younger students. Both know which stu- dents they are scheduled to work with and take charge with the tasks needing done. They relate well to the students, but also they both hold these students account- able for the tasks they are to com- plete. Laura has even brought in a reward for one particular stu- dent if he accomplished a certain goal. In addition, they are flex- ible. If we need to exchange roles or exchange students, the gifts easily adjust. We also have had authentic conversations trying to problem solve some of the read- ing issues that need addressing. It really is a pleasure to see their taking ownership in this teaching process and truly trying to help these students get better." Congratulations and thank you, Laura and Allie! www.tricountynews.MN Junior Cubs perform, see story on page 13.
