MIAMISBURG'S DISTRICT STUDENT OF THE MONTH IS ISSA MCMILLAN
The Miamisburg City School District September Student of the Month is Miamisburg High School 9th grader Issa McMillan. Issa was nominated by his teacher, Lori Curry. Mrs. Curry explained why Issa was nominated, "Since the first day of class, Issa McMillan has illustrated the definition of the model student; he pays close attention during direct instruction, participates regularly in class discussions, and completes his homework on time, every time. However, this isn't good enough for Issa; he expects the best from his classmates as well.
During class, Issa quietly, subtly, and regularly prompts and redirects classmates sitting close to him when they are not focused. He reminds them to write homework assignments in their planners. He cheerfully comes to their aid when they are struggling with a difficult question or concept. And when the bell rings and the dust settles, Issa will still be there, cleaning up after his peers who absentmindedly left paper on the floor and laptops on desks.
While all of this exemplifies the Positive Peer Influence asset #15, what sets Issa apart from many other positive peers is that he doesn’t have to work to exemplify this asset; it just comes naturally to him. He exudes a genuine positivity that infects those around him, and he helps his peers simply because he believes people should just be nice and helpful to each other. He is driven to help without being asked or being rewarded; in fact, if you offer him a treat or even just a “thank you,” Issa refuses to accept because he doesn’t see the need. Indeed, facilitating harmony within and without appears to be Issa’s sincere goal."

Miamisburg, Ohio Rocked My Socks Off!!
Some of you may know that last year my husband was deployed with the Navy Reserve, somewhat unexpectedly. I had to cancel all my already scheduled school visits for the fall because I still had a teenage daughter at home – son was leaving for his first year of college.
It was hard to miss all my beloved children all over the country at my school visits, but what are you going to do? Life and family happens, right?
BUT! There was one week that had been planned a year in advance for May, 2015. A super, amazing, very MAGICAL librarian, Debbie Carmichael at Mound Elementary had contacted me after I had been at her school the year before in Miamisburg, Ohio. She wanted to have me come and speak at every single elementary school in their school district. She called it a “Michelle Nelson-Schmidt Extravaganza Week!!”
