To Whom It May Concern,
I would like to recommend Lori Rettig for a myriad of different positions in which she is more than qualified. She is an excellent motivational speaker, an engaging teacher, although no longer in the classroom full time, as she owns several businesses and also works as a life coach, tutor, editor, writer and entrepreneur. Fortunately she continues to spend much of her personal time as an unpaid volunteer at many schools, providing numerous services to the students and the teachers, all of whom benefit from her excellence. Mrs. Rettig came to my school to help teach the students new material and to explain the dynamics of being an entrepreneur and did so in a way that made all students feel respected, validated and heard.
I had the pleasure of working with her at Mount Vernon Presbyterian School last week and I was very impressed with her abilities as a teacher.
Specifically, Lori worked with my students on an innovative project for the storytelling unit. She met with a number of my students to understand their interests and skills for a performance task in my Grade 6 classroom. She was able to lead an engaging discussion about the topic so the students were motivated to work on a challenging project. She impressed me with her dedication to the students, the classroom and our mission.
As Head of Grade, I have worked with many different teachers and substitutes and it is always nice to have an experience with a teacher who is dedicated and professional. I would be happy to be a referral for Lori.
