Davenport - This month, on The Student Leader of the Month,  we want to feature a brilliant student from Horizon's Elementary School in Davenport. Meet Roodny Jeanty.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Roodny, and this is what he shared with us:

NEPG : Which grade are you attending right now?

Roodny:  I am currently in the 5th grade. I will be attending Boone Middle School next school year.

NEPG :What leadership position are you responsible for?

Roodny : I am currently a student mentor. I also assist with students in the cafeteria and during dismissal.

NEPG : Tell me about how your leadership approach has influenced others around you.

Roodny : I model positive behavior by being respectful and confident. Students tend to want to help others by the way I treat them. This has motivated them to emulate my positive behavior as well as improve their grades. I have influenced other students to do the right thing. I read to the kindergarteners and assist them with their sight words. I conference with students that are having a hard time in class or at school.

NEPG : What are your plans for the rest of the summer?

Roodny : My plans for the summer include babysitting my younger brother, as well as my older sister's kids.

NEPG : What would be your message for younger kids who are planning on taking a leader's role within their school/community?

Roodny : My message for younger kids is for them not to be afraid of taking chances and focus on their school work. Students should not be afraid of bullies and, as a bystander, always tell an adult. My personal motto is to always treat others the way you would like to be treated. That is the golden rule and that rule goes a long way when it is time for others to help you.
