Licensed Teacher, Fifth Grade Mesquite Elementary School Gilbert, Arizona
"Stephanie has grown self-assured in her abilities to handle difficult situations with both students and parents. She has developed very warm relationships with the children and the atmosphere of her classroom is warm and nonthreatening. Although she will not be teaming on a daily basis next year [her class will be self-contained], I would like to see Stephanie continue with the collaborative partnerships she has developed."
