To Whom It May Concern:

Chelsea Constantino has been a student teacher in my eighth grade class for eight months. She has been a
part of a five teacher team with more than one hundred students. Chelsea has been responsible for
teaching four sections of Social Studies focusing on American History.

Ms. Constantino will have had the experience of teaching American History from the Revolutionary
period through the American Civil War. During this time she planned and implemented the daily
homework, weekly quizzes and unit tests. Chelsea has successfully demonstrated her awareness of
different learning styles and has adequately adjusted assignments to meet the varied needs of students.
Her units were thoroughly prepared and implemented. She was successful in monitoring and adjusting to
various and sometime unpredictable schedule changes during her time of teaching.

Chelsea has a tremendous ability to connect very quickly to her students. She was very willing to jump
right in and help individual students even before she had taken over classes. Chelsea was able to make all
of her students feel very safe and comfortable. Students in her class were very willing to share responses
in the classroom and she was adept at keeping entire classes engaged in the activities.

Ms. Constantino also participated in parent teacher conferences as well team meetings involving teachers,
administrators, and parents. Chelsea was very willing to make positive and supportive contributions to
team discussions.

Chelsea possesses a positive and enthusiastic personality. She has a fabulous rapport with the students.
She is well dressed, articulate, and always ready with a smile and a kind word. Chelsea is a strong
working member of our team and has had a positive working relationship with each one of the team
members, as well as with other staff members. I am confident that Ms. Constantino will be a valuable
asset to any staff that she works with. She is confident, knowledgeable, and has the skills of a seasoned
teacher. I believe that she will continue to grow and become even more effective as a teacher with further
