COMMENTS:
Mrs. Laplante easily modifies and changes plans based upon contextual variables; like class size, time line, low attendance,
cultural diversities and for learning disabilities. She takes the program of studies into account when planning lessons and
assessment materials; projects developed from this are relevant and engaging to middle school level. Mrs. Laplante used her
own time to find resources and materials. She implements her lessons using a variety of instructional strategies: most common
strategies used were direct instruction, demonstrations to whole class and small groups, one on one work and peer evaluation.

GOMMENTS:
Mrs. Laplante has been working on this section throughout PSll and had improved along the way. She has become much better
at knowing where all of her students are at and developing positives relationships with them. I still think she can work on her
presence as a leader and on discipline actions.

4. ASSESSMENT
KSA #11 Teachers gather and use information about students' learning needs and progress and assess the range of learning obyectives.

COMMENTS:
Mrs. Laplante has become better at organizing who she speaks with and as a result knows at what level all of her students are
at. She marks projects quickly and returns rubric in a timely fashion. Constant formative feedback happens. Students are aware
from day one of a project how they will be graded.

GOMMENTS:
Mrs. Laplante is already a professional and demonstrates her understanding of attributes and responsibilities within the teaching
profession. She is 100% ready for her internship and already acts and behaves like a teacher.

Areas for further growth:
Even though Mrs. Lapiante in 100% ready for her internship she can still work on her presence in the classroom. Her personality
is so kind and caring that I find she lacks disciplinary skills. Also, she had such great classes that there wasn't a need to work on
it regularly. I'd like to see her command the room by modulating her voice, making noises to get their attention, use repeat back
methods to make sure students are listening to her, circulating while lecturing and using proximity as a classroom management
technique. Mrs. Laplante needs to improve on demanding respect in the classroom. I would suggest that in her internship that
she venture out to see other teachers teach and to invite administration to come view some of her lessons.

Overall comments (Strongest aspects of student's performance):


Mrs. Laplante has succeeded with flying colors during her PSll. She is more than ready for her internship and I already know
she will be an excellent teacher. Mrs. Laplante's mature, responsible and positive personality created a great environment for
the students as well as for me. She dedicated herself to developing well-organized, detailed and exciting projects for this age
group. ln fact, her ability to organize and prepare materials prior to teaching the lesson is amazing and well thought out. Mrs.
Laplante also helped with developing a huge set design for our upcoming production; she spent two full days of her Easter
break helping me with this. This shows her commitment to her school and co-curricular activities. She is so adaptable and
flexible; very capable of changing plans on the fly and dealing with unforeseen interruptions within the busy school day. Mrs.
Laplante is fair to all students, develops positive relationships, teaches engaging lessons, modifies and adapts to different needs
and is able to teach full time days successfully. Any staff will be lucky to have her as an intern or as a teacher upon graduation.
