As the Head of Academics, Nursery to Grade 9 at Lertlah School Kaset-Nawamin, I have had the privilege of acting as academic supervisor to Ms. Anna Cousins
As a Grades 1-3 English Language Arts, Phonics teacher, Anna consistently planned and delivered lessons that engaged her students, reflects her knowledge of the various levels and types of learners, and displays her passion for education.
Anna’s relationship with students has always been positive and her commitment to their emotional and academic well-being is evident in the interactions she has with them in the classroom and within the school. Her classroom management and teaching techniques are such that students understand expectations, are on task and maximized learning opportunities are common. She has shown a great understanding of the student, developing solutions to the difficulties they face, both academic and behavioural. She approaches behavioural discipline positively, preserving student dignity in the process. Students in Anna’s class are therefore aware that positive interactions are the expectation and that she is willing to work with them upon developing in that regard.
Anna’s commitment to developing upon her knowledge of all aspects of educational philosophy and pedagogy has been evident through conversations I have had with her personally, as well as the ways in which she has participated in the various professional development and professional learning community opportunities we have had at Lertlah.
I would recommend Ms. Cousins to any professional learning community hoping to improve their staff.
If you have any other questions regarding Ms. Anna Cousins, please feel free to contact me.
