I have a Bachelor's in Arts in environmental education from Hiram College in Hiram, Ohio. My job experience includes the past year as a field instructor. I instructed classes of up to 15 fourth through sixth graders about water quality, ecosystems, and sustainability. During the summer of 2011, I was a camp teaching assistant at a zoo camp for 4 and 5-year-old campers. In 2009, I was a camp counselor for inner city Cleveland youth, ages 6 through 14. During high school, I spent a year as a mentor.

It is with pleasure that I write a letter of recommendation on behalf of Zachary. I have known Zach for approximately one and a half years. Zach worked as an associate teacher in my Pre-Kindergarten classroom during the 2013-2014 school year.
Zach has a wonderful way with children. He is patient, comforting and attentive. Zach is intuitive and understands the importance of the young child s need to belong to a classroom community where they are honored; where they can feel safe and comfortable and where their individual timetables are respected. I have observed Zach leading large group activities as well as working with small groups of children. During these interactions with the children, Zach displayed a great deal of warmth and compassion towards all of the children in the classroom.
Zach is a natural teacher with young children. Zach is an active listener and spent a great deal of time problem solving with the students in our class. He respects and encourages the individuality of each child.
Zach is very dependable and responsible. Zach demonstrated great professionalism and dedication to his job. Each day he entered the classroom with a positive attitude and was willing to contribute wherever needed.
I would highly recommend Zach for a position that involves working with young children.
