Student of the Week Nathan Collins

Junior at School on Wheels

Nusenda Credit Union, in partnership with the APS Education Foundation, highlights an APS student each week.

Nathan’s school experience: My school experience: I began attending School on Wheels in January of 2015 in hopes of catching up on classes I had not been able to complete at previous schools. When I first began attending School on Wheels, I was very soft-spoken, unfocused during class, and isolated from other students. However, after attending classes with usually no more than fifteen students, I was able to attain more attention from my educators to keep me focused, speak louder, and communicate more with others. I have had much more success at School on Wheels than I have had at any other schools.

Favorite course: My favorite course that I have taken at School on Wheels was a computer coding class that took last year. I felt challenged while taking this class with also a feeling of satisfaction of being able to do something that felt so difficult and complicated.

Plans for the future: Ideally, I would like to attending college and further my learning of computers as much as possible with my piqued interest in computers and computer sciences.
