Spartan Spotlight
Our Spartans are multi-talented, caring members of their community.

Each month the “Spartan Spotlight” will shine on a student who has done something special beyond the walls of his or her school. Whether it be sharing their talents with others, excelling at a non-school related sport, participating in a hobby, or volunteering their time to help out, we want to let everyone know how our Spartans shine.
June 2018 Spartan Spotlight: Tiba Al-Sultani

AGE: 11 1/2

GRADE/SCHOOL: 5th Grade, Homer Brink

SPOTLIGHT MOMENT: Writing a book about her immigration to the United States from Iraq
When Tiba came to Endwell and Homer Brink as a fourth grade student, not only was she experiencing a new culture, she also had to learn a new language. One year later, Tiba not only speaks nearly fluent English, but she wrote a book about her experience of migrating from Bagdad, first to Turkey, and then to the U.S. It’s called, “My Life.” Tiba is excited to share her book with others so that they can know her story and learn through her experiences. 


Activities/Hobbies: Drawing, using the computer, and playing with her younger siblings.

Favorite Subjects: Art and library 

Least Favorite Subject: Math

What she wants to be when she grows up: Tiba is still undecided.
