Malik Givens is a first grade student at White's Chapel Elementary School. He is the son of Erika Brown and the student of Valerie Smith. Malik is a very inquisitive and happy child. His younger twin siblings are in pre-K at White's Chapel also, and he loves being a big brother.
In room 1-02, (The Smithsmiles Classroom) there is a banner that asks the question, "Have you used your brain today?" Malik thinks it is fun to use your brain, and when he does, it makes him feel good all day.
A very creative artist, Malik also enjoys reading and writing large numbers. One day in December 2012, he completed a 100 grid as part of his morning work, and then asked Ms. Smith, if he could count to a billion. The question was surprising to her, coming from a six-year-old first grader.
