Coralville Central's Angela McLean
Coralville Central Elementary
"Parents like us trust caring and creative teachers to partner with us to develop our treasured children. Angela McLean has consistently demonstrated extraordinary compassion and careful attention to the needs of her preschool class at Coralville Central Elementary School as she has helped prepare our son and his classmates to contribute to their community. Angela knows each of her students well and consistently demonstrates an ability to unlock their social and emotional growth in addition to academic learning in fun and engaging ways.
Guiding our first child through the education process can be highly emotional and full of self-doubt. However, from the start of the school year, we have been calmed by Angela’s confident depth of experience. Working with people takes tremendous energy and can easily lead to burn out, yet we refreshingly find Angela showing continual and genuine positive regard, as well as relentless creative solution finding for each child she serves which combined, makes her, in our opinion, a true expert.
We believe Angela’s experience and aptitude to teach through a wide variety of learning styles makes her an invaluable asset to the Iowa City Community School District. It is readily apparent through each of our parent-teacher conferences that she loves her work. Our son comes home having benefited from memorable, hands-on experiences and with stories of “Miss Angie” that delight us as we supplement her efforts at home based on her professional guidance.
Without reservation and with deep gratitude we believe Angela McLean is a shining example of the kind of teacher every parent hopes their child will enjoy!"
