Haverford-Havertown Patch is seeking suggestions from readers for
individual kids, youth groups, teens, and even sports teams that wow us with their accomplishments. This week, we highlight high school senior Samantha Prager.
Michele E. Daniszewski, Haverford High School math teacher and department chair, wrote the following recommendation on Samantha:
"Samantha is a very respectful and motivated student who works persistently toaccomplish her goals. She eagerly accepts challenges and is motivated to succeed. She alwayshas a positive attitude. She possesses a great deal of maturity, and is respected by her peers andfaculty. Samantha’s performance in my classes was consistently outstanding both academicallyand socially. She interacted well during group activities. She was continuously looking for realworld connections and extensions to math problems. When she came across a math problem shecould not solve she was not afraid to seek assistance and she always asked intelligent questions.She was very organized and punctual with assignments."
