kindergarten, aftercare teacher
emerson waldorf school, sept 2013 - may 2015

Responsibilities included caring for approximately 11 children (ages 4-6) during rest, settling them down before rest, and transitioning them to snack and then outside play. This position finely tuned my adaptation, organization, and leadership skills as I worked to meet the needs of a handful of young children at any given moment.

This position requires many skills in adapting quickly to ever changing circumstances and being an effective and caring problem solver... Rebecca was a very conscientious employee and was well-received by children and parents. She was able to adapt to new situations and was eager to receive any advice and mentoring.

k-6 Education, master of arts in teaching
meredith college, aug 2014 - may 2015

With a heavy concentration on theory, application, and thorough content knowledge, Meredith College is known for turning out some of the state's best educators. The fast pace of their Master of Arts in Teaching program strengthened my skills in time management, while the demanding curriculum pushed me to create high quality work in challenging circumstances. I completed just over half of this program before ultimately deciding to move on from the field.

Rebecca impressed me with her intellectual curiosity, passion for knowledge, and adventurous spirit. She is hard working, thoughtful, charismatic, and open-minded, and she has a clear commitment to get things done.
