I have many years of experience working in the education, sector and have seen many great teachers come and go. Mary Anne however is one individual I have worked with who uniquely stands out.
During the time I worked with MaryAnne as educators, she displayed great talents in her organisational skills, managing her classroom, teaching concepts to all learning styles and developing a genuine love of learning in her students. When we first met, I was immediately impressed with her knowledge base and her innovative new teaching styles that made a difference in the way her students both behaved and learned.
It’s not just her teaching skills that impress me, however Mary Anne was a joy to work with because of her passion, positive attitude and ability to never give up on a child. Her commitment, dedication and empathy were also noticeable and valued not just by myself, but also by her student’s parents.
I am absolutely confident that Mary Anne would be a great fit in your organisation. Not only will she bring the kind of skills and experiences / expertise you’re looking for in an teacher/ educator, but she will also quickly become an asset and assist both your institution and your students grow in ways beyond national expectation.
As a recommendation only provides a snapshot of her talents and achievements, I would be happy to further elaborate on my time working with her.
Teachers have a very significant and life-long impact on learners, this is what Mary anne has been in my life journey. Shes helped shape me and my self esteem. Shes set me up well for success and has been the support structure that hasbeen lacking. Knows when to nudge, give a push or when to let me figure it out, but most importantly would not let me give up.
She is not just a great listener, but also a passionate Ambassador for learning and children.
Teaching is a tough job but she does it with such class, takes her work seriously and dresses up well for it too.
Mary Anne is a fantastic teacher, her commitment and dedication to her students wellbeing and development is a joy to watch. She's highly competent, has plenty of humour and is always looking for ways to help their students improve and learn.
Her excellent teaching skills, strong sense of responsibility, geniul care about her students and their academic progress.
Mary-Anne is a very knowledgeable, experienced and organised teacher. If she teaches you, you'll make great progress because she is clear, patient and sets high standards. Mary-Anne is also a very confident teacher, who can explain things really clearly. Overall she cares about her students and can to teach across abilities - including extending more able students.
Mary-Anne works hard to make sure that students reach their potential. I would definitely recommend Mary-Anne.
