Mentor Moment: Meet Hannah Rees

By Sally Andrews Coordinator of Community Relations

 

Hannah Rees, an Algebra I teacher at Vidor High School, is giving something extra of herself these days. She gives up a conference period each week to mentor a young person in reading at Vidor Elementary through the Pirate Pals program.

 

“ When I was in middle school, I got the opportunity to have a Kinder-Buddy and I still remember, at age thirty , how much fun I had with that I had always thought it would be cool to be able to do something like this as an adult, so when I heard that the district was going to do a Pirate Pal program, I knew I had to do it! “ says Rees. She says she has seen her Pirate Pal’s confidence and love for reading grow since they first began reading together in October .

Mock Trial Team competes in area trial event

By Sally Andrews Coordinator of Community Relations

 

February 11th the VHS Mock Trial Team competed in a mock trial challenge event. Thousands of high school students from across the state participate each year in this highly motivating, energetic, and challenging academic competition! The program provides a great way for students to gain an “insider’s view” of our judicial system, plus, they gain confidence speaking in front of others and have a lot of fun at the same time. Each team must learn both sides of the case study (Prosecution/Plaintiff and Defense) and students must play the roles of both attorneys and witnesses in a ‘mock’ trial. Members work together to learn the facts of the case and create strategies for trial and then compete in local-area meets.
