At a glance

Each month, Brent Subic’s IB Diploma Programme teachers will choose a student who embodies the featured Learner Profile.

For the month of November, we are featuring a student who embodies the learning profile COMMUNICATOR.

I have seen Sonia developed from a very quiet unassuming student to a very confident one; albeit a low key one.  As the President of the Students for Students Club she is very articulate in composing letters that are submitted to the Administrators concerned.  She leads the club every week with determination and purpose to ensure that the meeting will go smoothly and that the objectives are carried out .  While she is soft-spoken she can send her ideas across and she can be very firm about it.  Her discipline and maturity is way above the rest of the group.  She can be very productive even if unsupervised.  She is very organized in thoughts and in deed.  Being fluent in three languages gives her the advantage to be able to communicate well with almost everybody inside or outside the school. In all of our club projects, she is usually the one communicating with Mr. Petrillo and Ms. Almanzor pertaining the status of our request or the things that we need to accomplice in order for our projects to be approved.  She faces problems head on and although she would be really stressed about certain setbacks, you will not see it in her face.  She is very steadfast in making sure that her duties are performed to the best of her abilities.

Will asks meaningful questions on a regular basis. He is constantly spreading awareness of new ideas and information that is not only interesting for himself, but useful to others as well. He is passionate about learning, and very enthusiastic in sharing his knowledge.

Will is naturally curious because he always asks questions to be able to understand or find an answer to. He enjoys asking questions and enjoys learning new things that would help him throughout his life. He is very aware of certain events and/or information and he likes to be independent in learning even if they are not always accurate. His enthusiasm for education is the beginning of his natural curiosity.

Amanda is very knowledgeable in many different ways. We have history class together and whenever we have discussions, I can see how her answers to each question raised reflects what she understands about the topic. Also, I have been in MUN last year with Amanda. I can see how Amanda shines in MUN by deeply exploring about world issues and its global significance. Thus, Amanda not only is knowledgeable in terms of learning different subjects, but also in global world issues.

As Secretary-General of Model United Nations, Amanda is naturally knowledgeable. I always ask her questions about current events and global issues and most of the time she doesn’t only answer my question, but also enlightens me even more. Also we have History class together, and during our discussions I can see that she really understands what she is talking about, and even goes beyond the required reading. Amanda is a studious individual, and is also naturally curious, so she always has a bunch of information up her sleeve. Also, the knowledge she possesses is not just random facts, but she is deeply insightful regarding a variety of globally significant fields.

Aezie is an outside of the box thinker who critically and creatively recognize and approach complex problems. When she finds a problem, she recognizes why she has a problem and then find reasoned arguments and solutions to be able to solve those problems. In history, when she has difficulty in supporting and explaining her arguments, she critically thinks of reasonable solutions to support and explain her argument for other students to understand what she is expressing.
