Dear Cooperating Teacher,
Hello! My name is Kaylyn Wallen, and I will be your new intern for the upcoming fall semester. I grew up in the small town of Margo, Saskatchewan and attended Invermay School from Kindergarten to Grade 12. I am currently completing the third year of my B.Ed. degree as a mathematics major and general science minor.
While I was in high school I was yearbook editor, a member of the volleyball team, and the treasurer of the student representative council along with being involved in several other groups. These experiences helped me gain valuable skills and led me to a career in teaching. During my internship I am interested in helping with these as well as a variety of other extra curricula activities. I feel I could contribute to and learn from experience with these groups and sports but am also open to working with others as well.
I have been a lifeguard, swimming instructor and assistant coach for the Special Olympics soccer and swimming teams. Through these experiences I have gained leadership, communication, organization, and planning skills that will be demonstrated both inside and outside of the classroom. I feel I will bring an enthusiastic, hard-working attitude into the school. I hope to engage the students in lessons and have them be excited and eager to learn.
I am very eager to begin my internship at your school! I hope to learn new classroom management skills, assessment tools and ways to differentiate lessons for students. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to intern with you this fall. I am excited to work and learn with you and the other staff members at your school. I will be in contact with you before the end of the school year to arrange to visit both you and the school. If you have any questions or need to contact me, feel free! I am excited for this experience, and I’m sure it will be valuable for both of us!
