The A+ Students

 

It has been a tradition in all my classes to award a single A+ to the top student. In some very rare occasions two A+ are assigned if I feel there are two students who excelled equally throughout the semester. This list includes a handful of my students who distinguished themselves among their peers, and made me particularly proud and happy to be their teacher.
