She created clear learning goals and success criteria for students and modelled what was expected for each task or
assignment. Keyan gave students opportunities to improve their work. Her assessment of learning was very organized and
helpful to both the student, parents and myself. She posted her assessments in the Google Classroom so that it was available

made it easy to meet the curriculum expectations for both grade 4 and 5 as well as the diverse needs of the 31 students in the
