Lois is very well organized, and is very
serious in ensuring that the students goals
are met by her program. She reflects on her
practice to excellent effect. I would trust
Lois to run an excellent program with a
minimum of supervision. She works well
with her colleagues, but also well
independently. I am very pleased with her
performance and look forward to seeing
where her creativity and hard work take
her in the future. Performance Review by
