Age: 10 The Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship



Maple Elementary School, Tulare City School District

Pillar: Respect

"Treat others the way you would want to be treated. This is a statement that Dennise lives by in and out of the classroom. She is respectful, has great manners, and is considerate of others' feelings. She makes good choices and is a role model to those around her. Not only is she respectful to students at Maple School, she is respectful to adults on campus. When I am out of the classroom I can always count on Dennise to help out the teacher and make sure things are running smoothly. Dennise goes out of her way to help me and other teachers at Maple without being asked. I am proud to be Dennise's teacher and I am excited to see what her future holds."
