Madie thanked everyone for selecting her as Student of the Month and told us about herself.  This is her last meeting with our group.  She focused on the things that are unique about her.  She is a 5th year Spanish student, which she loves.  She watches several TV shows in Spanish to help  improve her local usage of Spanish.  Her future plans include studying languages with a hope to become a linguist for the FBI.  Madie also enjoys writing and has won several national awards for her short stories.
