February 2012Re: Letter of Recommendation for
Lisa Myers
To whom it may concern
It is my pleasure to write this letter for Lisa Myers, who was an undergraduate student in two of my classes at Drake University – Curriculum & Pedagogy and Elementary Social Studies Methods.Therefore, I have had many opportunities to speak with her about her educational experiences, her careergoals as a teacher, and her thirst for knowledge. She will be a wonderful, successful teacher! As heradvisor, professor and mentor, I have clearly recognized her skills and attributes. They include:Personal attributes:Lisa is a dependable, trustworthy, and motivating. She sees the bright side of a situation andremains positive in her interactions with her peers, teachers, kids, and parents. She is a patient andcaring teacher. She is careful to see the needs and issues of others, but makes up her own mindthrough thoughtful reflection. She displays confidence in her academic and professionalresponsibilities. Lisa is trustworthy, dependable, enthusiastic, and professional in her interactions.She was an absolute JOY to have in class. Her ability to make connections and to reflect on pastexperiences is phenomenal. She has a global citizenship focus as a learner and is highly capable of helping children become “participatory citizens” as well.Professional attributes:It goes without saying, she can prepare interesting, engaging lessons for students-week after week over time. She is an organized, creative person as evidenced through her Junior Achievementlessons, weekly plans, projects, and units in Pedagogy and Social Studies Methods. Shedemonstrated expertise in children’s literature and in development of interdisciplinary units of study. For example, her project on teaching US states was very creative. Importantly, she has awell-developed classroom management plan with routines and procedures to keep kids focused ina successful learning environment. Her previous teaching experiences have prepared her for futureteaching endeavors. Feedback from her practicum teachers is excellent!I highly recommend Lisa for any elementary teaching position, especially where she can use herreading endorsement and Spanish concentration. While she has had both urban and suburban teachingexperiences, she will be a success anywhere. She will be not only a fabulous, caring teacher but she will be athoughtful and collaborative faculty member. Contact me if you need further information on this worthycandidate.Sincerely,
