CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. - Eighth grader, Emma Schoetz of Chappaqua, has been named one of the Wooster School's Student of the Month.
In the words of her teachers, she is “a true artist.” She’s creative and expressive with all that she does, and her theatricality infuses her disposition, her academic work, and her relationships. Creativity of this variety is simultaneously something which, yes, has an innate component, but it’s also something for which Schoetz actively and intentionally strives.
“Emma is the kind of student who not only goes over things twice; she’ll go through things three, four, five times, digging into the ideas and language in a way that goes far beyond the conventional and the safe,” one of Schoetz's teachers said.
Implicit in praises like these are several fundamental characteristics of success: hard work, creativity, confidence, and of course, maturity. Schoetz integrates them all seamlessly, and both adults and her peers are fully capable of understanding and appreciating the mix. It’s really no surprise, then, that her dramatic voice, depth of thought, and the musicality of her language often stir her English classmates to spontaneous applause.
In addition to her enormous creative energies and rich cultural background, she exemplifies foundational Wooster values. While Schoetz is new to Wooster this year, she’s clearly made quite the impression and contribution to the Wooster School community. Congratulations, Emma, for being named the Eighth Grade Student of the Month.
