Rebecca brought a level of intelligence and efficiency to the job we would never have expected from a high school student, and certainly not a Freshman. She listened carefully to instructions, and asked appropriate questions. The work she produced was accurate and she required minimal supervision. She freed us up to focus on other tasks knowing that we could trust her to complete her work in a competent and professional manner. We are so grateful that she was with us this year!
