Tait was nominated as Student of the Month by Terry Smith, Technology STEM Teacher at Central DeWitt Middle School.

Ms. Smith says Tait has become a very active participant within her classroom.  He was a member of one of the FLL (FIRST Lego League) teams that it to state, and really pushed himself out of his shell with his creativity and ability to think outside of the box.  He is a hard worker, and very respectful to all of his teachers and peers.  “As a teacher, I have really enjoyed watching his growth throughout the years, and I look forward to seeing where his drive takes him in the future,” Ms. Smith shares.

Tait reflected on his participation with the FIRST Lego League saying it has really helped him learn how to communicate better with others, because it requires a great amount of teamwork in order to be successful.  His favorite part about FLL is that “it allows students a way to shine by sharing their knowledge.”  Tait looks forward to the possibility of applying his experience with FLL by joining the robotics team in High School.

Along with his participation in FLL, Tait says he is most proud of the work he has done recently within the classroom.  He shared that he has been very focused on his grades while also working to keep a positive attitude.
