Praise for Lydia’s work:

 

“[…] Everybody enjoyed having time with her and still they are asking to have her next year…

Friendly/creates a comfortable class environment; she is full of beans and each student felt her confidence soon.

Excitement for teaching: the first thing should be excitement to learn and teach […] her eagerness to be with us gave us energy.”

“I know well that the kids demonstrated a lot of talents and “opened their hearts” with your help. I’ve heard the final performance was awesome and impressive.”

“It was an inspiring idea to let the students find the dancing choreography themselves – I enjoyed to see how students turned into teachers. Adding lines to the script is motivating and student-centred, plus it triggers their imagination.[…] The way you conducted the rehearsals was creative, motivating and I was impressed by how much you were able to teach our students. They enjoyed learning with you.”
