Q. What makes this student special?

Courtney Chady: Nora is an outstanding student. She is always ready to work and truly seems to enjoy problem solving and mathematics. She loves getting difficult problems to try to solve and even makes up her own problems to challenge herself. I can see the joy of math in her and the excitement of figuring out a problem.
