“Ms. Sawtelle has been my daughter’s Art teacher for approximately eight years. During that time she has consistently demonstrated the qualities of a quality, caring teacher. Ms. Sawtelle balances accomplishing lesson goals with fostering creativity. She has successfully taught many students of different ages, abilities and learning styles.
Ms. Sawtelle has supported my daughter’s learning through different developmental stages, levels of maturity and varying interests. At every point in that process, Ms. Sawtelle has encouraged and challenged my daughter and classmates to excel, enjoy learning and grow as students. Her effectiveness as a teacher is evidenced in her students’ interest in in the next lesson and future projects.
As a parent of one of her students, I am thankful that my daughter has received excellent instruction from a genuine, reliable educator who truly cares about her."
