Recommendation

November 27, 2003


To Whom It May Concern:

Florence Nathan and I worked together for two years teaching a multiage community of 5, 6 and 7 year olds at an American style international school in Shanghai, China. During that time, I had the opportunity to observe her teaching style and to get to know her personally.

Flo is a dedicated teacher. She wants the best for her students and out of her students. She planned and taught lessons that were creative and challenging. Every student had the opportunity to learn under her guidance. She used many engaging activities to stimulate thinking and create interest in the topic being studied. She engaged parent participation where appropriate. She carried out student assessments and conferences in a professional manner. She used the information from these assessments to guide further growth and to demonstrate student growth to parents.

Flo is a cooperative team member. She makes suggestions, and she willingly carries out her responsibilities. She has a pleasant manner, and she takes a genuine interest in those around her.

Personally, Flo has a wide range of interests, experiences and expertise. She lives her life according to the principles she holds most dear. Her sense of humor is used appropriately both inside and outside of the classroom. She is fluent in French, English and Chinese. She uses the computer to great advantage both in and out of the classroom. She has had opportunities to be both a leader and follower and to develop curriculum for various age levels. She tries to maintain a balance between her personal life and her professional life.

I highly recommend Florence Nathan for a position in your school. If you wish more details, please e-mail me at bettek@ciss.com.cn or call me at 011-8621-5899-0380 during school hours.

Sincerely,
