Dear

As a 5th year student, in the Faculty of Education, in the middle year’s stream, at Brandon University; through the BUNTEP program. I am looking forward to my third year student teaching placement. My background includes Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education, and a strong understanding and speaking of the Ojibway Language. My first placement was in grade 7 teaching Language Arts and Mathematics. My second year placement was in Grade 4, teaching all areas. Both placements were done at Yellowquill School in Portage la Prairie. My third placement was in a multi-grade classroom, at Dakota Plains School, I worked with students from Grades 2, 3, 4, and 5. I wish to continue developing my skills in the Middle Years Stream.

I have been described as a hard working, energetic, easy to get along with and can adapt to any situation. I worked as a Substitute Teacher for 2 years. Then an Educational Assistant for 13 years and working with special needs children at Isaac Beaulieu Memorial School 93-05. I have a great understanding and an importance of delivering differentiated programming to meet the needs and strengths of each student. I have been a Foster Parent for 20 years and I have had many children of all ages and different backgrounds come into my home. I have learned the importance of understanding and accepting each as an individual with their own needs. I have worked with students and children if all ages and different backgrounds.

I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to work in your school, along side with a cooperating teacher. It would give me greater understand and experience to associate myself with other teaching communities. Should you have any questions or require and additional information, you may contact me at glenmaybeaulieu@msn.com, my home phone 204-240-7021, BUNTEP Coordinator at 204-856-0368.


Sincerely,
