General Comments:

Morgan has demonstrated a lot of growth when it comes to establishing her own presence in the
classroom and implementing effective classroom management strategies. As she continued
teaching, she built important connection and rapport with students who by now find it easier to
ask questions and come to her for advice or additional after school tutoring. Morgans motivation
and content knowledge make her a great new teacher with the knowledge base and enthusiasm
needed to succeed in the profession. I am confident that her willingness to try and come up with
new instructional strategies and content matter will drive her and make her a very successful
teacher in her own classroom.
