As a requirement by JMU for my internship, my supervisor was instructed to complete a midterm evaluation of my performance with me and I had to complete a midterm self-evaluation. We were also required to complete these same evaluations again at the end of my internship. These evaluations were meant to be a time to discuss my performance and highlight areas that I excelled in or needed to improve. It was extremely helpful to get feedback and have a chance to voice my opinions regarding the internship as well. This led to an outstanding and productive internship, not only for me, but also for my EDF supervisor. These evaluations are shown below in the order they were completed.
FEEDBACK & EVALUATIONS
Below are examples of the feedback I received from my team for my work at EDF, followed by evaluations completed by my supervisor and myself regarding my overall internship performance.

SUPERVISOR & SELF EVALUATIONS
Below is a portion of our monthly newsletter called "Roundup" that summarizes all of the great things the Ecosystems Team at EDF has accomplished each month. I am featured (highlighted in yellow) for one of my blog's outstanding performance and my self-promotions that drove a lot of the traffic.
"You are doing a fantastic job. You are very speedy, thorough and proactive, and not afraid to ask questions – all really important!"
-Cristina Mestre, EDF Communications Manager, in response to my request for a quick evaluation of my work at the beginning of the internship.
"Let me echo Cristina's thanks! Getting visibility to this blog is really important to our relationship with USDA on a variety of levels. They really appreciated the tweets and retweets on it."
-Robert Parkhurst, EDF Agriculture Greenhouse Gas Markets Director, in response to tweet interactions and mutual blog promotions between our Twitter and USDA's Twitter.
