I am writing to highly recommend Mrs. Aimee Andolina as a physical education teacher in a public school setting. Although we will miss her greatly, she is ready to climb to the next stage of her
professional development. There are many avenues of opportunity in a large district, that are not available in a small Catholic
school. For example, I can envision Aimee as a Physical Education Director, later
on in her career!
She excels in every aspect of teaching! What is most impressive upon meeting Mrs. Andolina is her positive attitude. If it is true that “attitude brings great altitude”, there are no limits
to her future successes!! There is a part of the Optimist’s Creed that
reminds me of Aimee. “To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true…To think only the
best, to work only for the best and expect only the best…To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you
are about your own…To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you greet a smile…To
give so much time to the development of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for defeat and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.” The author of this creed is marked “unknown”. Well, anyone who knows Aimee would bet that she was the author!!
On the topic of effective teaching, Mrs. Andolina demonstrates the following attributes:
Ø Exhibits positive expectations for students
Ø Establishes good classroom management techniques
Ø Designs lessons for student mastery
Ø Teaches with proven research-based practices
Ø Presents herself as a role model for students
Ø Differentiates and modifies the curriculum based on the needs of the students
Ø Emphasizes the strong correlation of healthy bodies and academic
Ø Underscores the importance of working as a TEAM-Together- Everyone- Achieves- More!!
Mrs. Andolina demonstrates
strong leadership in our school! She facilitates the Safety Committee, oversees
the arrival and dismissal of students, revised the entire K-12 Physical Education Curriculum and initiates school-wide activities.
In regard to her interpersonal skills, she surpasses the norm. Aimee
is admired and loved by students, colleagues and parents!
Aimee will be very successful and a real asset to any faculty!
If you need any further information to secure Aimee a position as a physical education teacher, please call me
Thank you for the opportunity of speaking on Mrs. Andolina’s behalf!
