Letter of Recommendation jh siracusa Document Transcript

  • 1. 10216 Thurston Groves Blvd, Seminole, FL 33778727.465.4120JARED HIRSCHFIELDRegarding Mrs. Fran Siracusa | jarhirschfield@shorecrest.orgMay 28, 2013To Whom It May Concern:I am writing this reference at the request of Mrs. Fran Siracusa, who is applying for an award ofexcellence in teaching with the use of technology. I was in daily contact with Mrs. Siracusa for twoyears in my capacity as a student at Country Day School in Largo, Florida. Mrs. Siracusa taught severallevels of Spanish at Country Day, including intermediate Spanish (Spanish 2-3) in which I was enrolledfor my seventh and eighth grade years. Based on Mrs. Siracusa’s passion for her subject area andextensive integration of technology in the classroom, I would rate my experience with her no less thanexceptional and the wealth of knowledge gained from her truly astounding.Mrs. Siracusa has a number of strengths that she consistently displays in her classroom and utilizes toconstantly improve the learning environments around her. Thanks to her strong leadership andunwavering dedication to the field of technology and learning, this year the entire Country Day MiddleSchool adopted an iPad-based curriculum aiming to even further promote the implementation oftechnology in the educational and academic realms. Being an above-average student, I felt that in mytime with Mrs. Siracusa my study of the Spanish language was significantly influenced and improved byher unique employment of technology in many aspects of my learning. For example, Mrs. Siracusa doesnot simply make use of technology to provide reinforcement or constant repetition, but she also usesher technological tools and techniques to encourage independent learning and to take the materialbeyond a simple lesson plan, extending its meaning into real-world applications.In conclusion, I would highly recommend Mrs. Fran Siracusa for any award recognizing teachers of highcaliper in the use of technology to aid and advance twenty-first century learning. If her performance atthe front of the classroom is any indication of how she would represent this award, Mrs. Siracusa wouldbe an extremely positive addition to the respect and significance of this award. If you need anyadditional information, feel free to contact me at (727) 465-4120 or by email anytime.Sincerely,Jared HirschfieldRising Tenth Grader at Shorecrest Preparatory School
