I have watched Jennalee develop from an excellent beginning teacher candidate to an outstanding teacher. Making connections between classroom learning and working with students comes easily to her. She was able to take the classroom information on whole brain research and apply that in developing her classroom discipline. Jennalee, working in her inclusion third grade classroom, incorporated technology, cooperative learning and multiple ELL strategies to successfully teach. -- University Professor

The students in her classroom are very diverse in academic and emotional levels. Jennalee’s competency with the curriculum and ability to adjust to the individual needs of the students made all of them feel loved and accepted. She prepared lessons that were engaging and appropriately challenging for all students. -- Cooperating Teacher
