Fatima Mahfouz is a fabulous online learner. She sets goals for herself and accomplishes them. In her OnlineHS personal introduction, she says, “My strengths include having good grades, being a fast learner and working hard”, and does she ever.
Her stellar performance this semester has already earned her 1.5 credits! And, because ANY student enrolled in OnlineHS core English classes is eligible to select the Honors Distinction, Fatima completed Sophomore English 251 & 252 with HONORS. In order to qualify for Honors Distinction and have it noted on the official transcript, a student MUST complete all the supplementary requirements in addition to all the regular course assignments. To achieve the Honors Distinction a student must demonstrate advanced outcomes beyond that of the regular course. Fatima has taken on this challenging option and succeeded with gusto. She revises her work until she is satisfied and proud of her accomplishment. In addition to being an HONORS English student, she is an exceptional creative writer, completing Creative Writing 1 – poetry and memoir writing – with flair. She just recently enrolled in Creative Writing II where she writes her own “Hero’s Journey” short story to prepare for online publication. That’s why Fatima is OnlineHS Student of the Month!
