SUMMARY STATEMENT (May be used as a referee statement)

Classroom Teacher/Mentor
Student Name: Hannah Setter Learning Area: English

Professional Knowledge
Hannah has demonstrated satisfactory knowledge of the curriculum requirements for Stage 1 English.
She has guided both classes through the Intertextual study from beginning to end, and has taken the
opportunity to do two different types of study (rather than simply repeating the same assignment
with both classes). Individual lessons were planned and presented logically and effectively, and with
increasing flexibility. She makes use of a variety of media in presenting information, making lessons
more engaging and effective. She drafted work giving comprehensive and constructive feedback. She
also marked work against SACE Performance Standards and contributed to school reports.

Professional Practice
Hannah has presented detailed plans for her lessons, and has paced her lessons at the appropriate
level for each class. She uses a variety of teaching strategies, such as visual, class discussions, group
work and individual student work. She sought feedback following lessons to make sure she was happy
with her progress and see if I had any concerns. This became less throughout the term as she became
more confident. Hannah marked work consistently and to a suitable standard and assisted with
reports.

Professional Engagement
Hannah has quickly achieved positive working relationships with students across both Year 11 English
classes. Students are comfortable to ask her questions and gain guidance and are respectful of her
when following directions – including the occasions when she reminds them to focus. She has
developed a very professional rapport with staff across the school, attended staff meetings and
training and development days.
