This is how 2 referees rated Odette:
A friendly approachable Advanced Skills Secondary English teacher with a passion for learning and accelerating progress. I fully believe that all individuals can excel often beyond what is expected of them.
I have taught English in inner city London schools for 10 years. As an English AST (Advanced Skills Teacher), my key strength is the academic achievements of my students who always achieve or exceed expected rates of progress. I am responsible for delivering teacher training within my school to support teachers achieving outstanding lessons. Alongside this, I am responsible for G&T and C/D borderline intervention, within English, to ensure that these students achieve/exceed targets. This involves producing engaging challenging materials, delivering small group catch up sessions and careful tracking and monitoring of student progress.
Students should be provided with clear models of success so that they fully understand what is expected of them to achieve the very best. Through engaging challenging materials, questioning and discussion students are able to explore ideas and develop their confidence. The use of past/practise papers and examination mark schemes is crucial for exam preparation. I also provide opportunities to practise key cross curricular literacy skills that underpin all exam success.
