I have been extremely impressed with Ms. Roark. She is what we call a natural to our profession, and I am
very excited for her as she continues working towards having her own classroom.

Kelsey strives to do her best in everything that she does. She asks many questions, and is accepting of all
feedback. She implements suggested strategies and tweaks them to make them her own.

In the short time that she was with me she formed lasting relationships with my students, got to know them
both personally and academically, and worked very hard to ensure she was meeting each of their needs.

Ms. Roark created her own lessons and assessments and used them to determine how successful her teaching
had been. She also used the data to create follow-up lessons to ensure her students achieved her desired

Kelsey works well under pressure and dives right into challenging situations. This week she went above and
beyond when she taught without me for 2 days while I was out of state. Even though there was a substitute in
the room she took the lead both days and handled this responsibility with grace and professionalism.

I am so honored to have been able to work with Kelsey, and hope that some day I am able to work with her
again. Wherever she finds herself in the future, her school will be very lucky to have her!!
