Student of the Week Akasha Piaso

4th grader at Montezuma Elementary School

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

What Akasha's teacher says about her: Akasha is a hard-working student and always willing to help her community. She pushes herself to new academic levels every day! Akasha will always lend a hand to help out a struggling classmate. She has a strong sense of justice and is a risk-taker. She is a proud Zuni student, willing to share her rich culture with our class. I have already learned a lot from Akasha and she continues to challenge me, her teacher, every day.

Favorite subjects: Math and reading

Outside interests: Akasha is thinking about becoming a chef. Her grandmother is teaching her how to cook.
