To Whom It May Concern:

I highly recommend Kristina Whitfield as a candidate for a teaching position at your school. I have
had the pleasure of coaching Kristi in curriculum and instruction for the past four school years.
Throughout this time, I have had ample opportunity to observe her teaching and to analyze data
and co-plan with her during our one-on-one coaching sessions. She has been a reflective and
innovative educator since the beginning of her career here, but over the past four years, she has
also grown into a highly effective and cherished member of our teaching staff.
