Congratulations to Cascade High School’s Baron Peterson, OnlineHS’s January Student of the Month.
Baron is a high-achieving Bruin Senior who excelled in his online Contemporary Global Issues course. When asked what he liked best about the class he says:
What I enjoyed most about my online learning was the alternate experience it provided from the other classes I have taken. It gave me a radically different viewpoint on learning and on the topics that I was researching.
In respect to what he learned in the course, Baron shared his favorite quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.:
“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.”
As an instructor, I like the fact that an online student would call and ask to get together for a one-on-one conversation to clarify and argue to understand the material at a deeper level. His course final presentations were very comprehensive and displayed a rare depth of understanding.
Barons says, “The flexibility of the course allowed me to work around my own schedule, having a job this made it very easy to get the work done. Also having a free period allowed me to work on other classes along with the online course.”
Congratulations Baron on your award and continued success!
