Feedback regarding Lesson Planning:


Hayley has continued throughout the internship year to complete her
lesson plans in time to be reviewed prior to instruction allowing time to
make any necessary changes. She always considered the constructive
criticism she received and used it to make her plans more effective for her
students.

Hayley's lessons always contained evidence of advanced preparation


and all year they were very well organized. In today's lesson she had all of
her needed materials within reach so there were no unnecessary
distractions for the students.

Hayley taught fall semester in a 1st grade general education setting and
spring semester in a Special Education elementary resource setting. Both
placements were within the Brighton Public School District. In both
placements Hayley planned lessons appropriate for the age, gender, and
abilities of her students.

Throughout the internship year Hayley consistently and explicitly guided


her students through the goals and purpose of each lesson she taught. In
addition, she reviewed and helped her students make connections to
lessons leading to new learning.

Hayley has improved her ability to plan activities that activate


background knowledge/ personal connections for the students.

In today's lesson she let the students use non-fiction books they were
interested in to teach the non-fiction text features of "captions" and
"headings".

Feedback regarding Lesson Components:


Hayley has improved her ability to guide her students through all of the
components of a strong lesson.

Hayley has a warm and positive manner about her. She has an innate
personality that students and staff connect with.

Throughout the internship year she explicitly modeled the expected


learning strategies, often using a "think aloud" to make strategies more
visible. In today's lesson the students were building books that contained
non-fiction text features and Hayley used the "think aloud" strategy while
she was modeling making her own book.

Hayley continued each week to check for student understanding


throughout the lessons and used her assessments to reflect on and adjust
what she would be teaching the following day.

Hayley used a variety of technology (Promethean boards, Elmo's, iPad's,


white boards, anchor charts, etc.) all year long to make learning more
accessible and engaging to her students. In today's lesson she had the
students using their iPads to look up animals and find the "captions" and
"headings in the articles.

Feedback regarding Creating and Managing Classroom Learning


Community:
Hayley has continued throughout the year to be consistent and explicit
when explaining behavior expectations and classroom routines.

Hayley treats all students with respect and visibly cares for them. They
in turn treat her the same way. Hayley does a good job of keeping an even
and calming tone to her voice even if student noise escalates.

Throughout the year Hayley always looked and acted professionally.


Whenever I came to observe her she always had a smile on her face and
seemed happy to be with her students.

Additional Comments:
Hayley has successfully completed her final observation for her
internship year. She began the year as a strong intern and continued
throughout the year to become even stronger.

Hayley is very professional, organized, and is a very hard worker. In


addition, she has a passion to change students lives that is visible to both
her students and co-workers.

Hayley is very capable at this point to step into a teaching position and
be a great asset to any school district.

It has been and honor and a privilege for me to have been a part of
Hayley's journey.
