Students trusted her both personally and academically, which created a comfortable and productive learning environment. Kaylas lessons were always delivered with clear and concise directions. She has a gift of questioning techniques that elicits responses from all students. When clarification was needed, students were comfortable seeking out Kayla for help, which she was more than happy to provide. Communication was not only great with the students but she also communicated with me on a professional and friendly level. Kayla would not hesitate to ask questions and was very accepting of constructive feedback. She almost always implemented the suggestions immediately. I have thoroughly enjoyed supervising and watching Kayla flourish as a teacher. It is without hesitation, and my personal opinion, that Kayla will be a phenomenal addition to any school faculty. Her dedication to the education field, her outstanding organizational skills and her exemplary teaching ability, leads me to believe that Kayla has the dedication and knowledge to be a successful teacher and will have much to offer the teaching profession.
