Maya is a creative and athletic sixth grader. When she is not in an Open Tent class, you can find her at the gym where she is a competitive gymnast. She also loves the outdoors and enjoys RV camping with her family. In her spare time, Maya loves crocheting and sewing clothes for her dolls.

What Eva has to say about Maya:

Since the first day of class, Maya has been engaged in every conversation, asking deep well thought out questions and putting her thoughtful answers into every conversation. 

Additionally, she has shown that her writing skills have carried over from writing class into literature!

What Jonathan has to say about Maya:

Throughout this course, Maya has repeatedly created excellent mind maps that really captured both the main points and detailed information covered in our weekly sessions.

She also is very inquisitive and not shy about participating in class, and she also often encourages her fellow learners to do so.

It has been awesome to have Maya participate as a student in this class, and I hope to see her again in future courses.

Jonathan Meola, OTA
