RE: Reference Letter for Abbey Hakin

To Whom it May Concern:

I would like to recommend Abbey Hakin as a candidate for a position with your organization. In
her position as Youth STEM Instructor, Abbey was employed in our office from 2013 - 2017.
Abbey was a summer camp Instructor, After-school Club Instructor, birthday party Science
Instructor, and general curriculum developer.

Throughout her time with our organization, she demonstrated critical skills that would make her
an excellent employee at your company.

Abbey did a terrific job in her position and was an asset to our organization during her tenure
with the office. She has excellent written and verbal communication skills, is extremely
organized, can work independently, and is able to effectively multi-task to ensure that all projects
are completed in a timely manner.

Because of her effectiveness, I even gave her additional responsibilities, including developing
lesson plans based on the tech tool Raspberry Pi. These lesson plans won an award from Actua
(actua.ca) for their quality and professionalism. Abbey went above and beyond in that
assignment, as she does in all tasks.

Abbey was always willing to offer her assistance and had an excellent rapport with the many
youth and parents served by our office as well as other professional organizations we partnered
with. Abbey was a great support to her fellow co-workers and provided guidance, leadership and
mentorship to them over the years within our organization.

She would be an asset to any employer, and I wholeheartedly recommend her for any endeavor
she chooses to pursue. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Sincerely,

Valerie Archibald
Director, Youth Outreach
Faculty of Arts & Science
University of Lethbridge
