I am most impressed with Amarilis' wisdom and knowledge as an instructor. Amarilis served as our Drama Specialist and greeted each camper with the attitude that every child has something to offer and she was able to "key in" on these excellences and bring them out to further flourish. She has immense passion for teaching and treats each student with dignity. She was always prepared and had age appropriate activities/lessons for age groups K - 5th grade. She is extremely creative, able to use all resources given her, flexible and able to flip from Plan A to Plan B without flinching. She has worked in many different environments and with diverse age groups and which allows her to handle all situations of discipline and class control with ease and great confidence.Children are naturally drawn to Amarilis........her kind nature, magnetic personality, and nurturing tone. This is truly what makes her effective as an instructor and teacher.
Ms. Rockhill has been a great value to the school. Her creative teaching and love for the students is just a few of the many attributes that she contributes. She is a team player and innovative. She makes the classroom fun but still upholds a disciplined class. She has assisted in curriculum writing, and also takes the lead in our Science and Math departments. Mrs. Rockhill is well liked and respected by her students, parents and fellow staff. She has a positive attitude and is a problem solver. As her principal, I have never had any negative or insubordinate experiences. She is respectful and has adhered to the guidelines of our school at all times. She is involved in the well- being of her students and has been instrumental in many of our eighth graders being accepted to prestigious High Schools throughout Connecticut.I would recommend Mrs. Rockhill for any position that she may want. She is well qualified and would be a great team member for any organization

Amarilis is an excellent teacher and because of that my child has received homework help, test taking strategies, and comprehension skills. He has also developed a love for Math and Science while improving in his writing skills.
Amarilis is a perfect blend of strictness and kindness. Her ability to connect with her students and her talent at teaching simple concepts, as well as more advanced topics, are both truly superior. She is capable of recognizing a student´s potential as well as weaknesses, apart from being very dedicated and sincere.
In addition, Amarilis is organized, efficient, extremely competent, and has an excellent rapport with people of all ages, especially children. Her communication skills, both written and verbal, are excellent. She can work independently and is able to follow through to ensure that the job gets done. She accomplishes these tasks with great initiative and with a very positive attitude.
