    Is it okay to have the same people as your reference and letters of recommendation?

    I have my former P and my current P on my application as references. I also am submitting letters of recommendation that they wrote. My third letter and my third reference are different though.

    Oh, and I have no clue why the title is all messed up and atoz does not allow you to change/edit the title, even though it's apparently an option?????

    I think it's fine! All of my references wrote me letters of recommendation, so I just use both. I wouldn't stress about it :) They rarely even look at these letters or call the references anyhow lol.

    No problem in using them. Why not ask the reference without the letter to write a letter as well?

    BTW... I recently found that in the on-line applications in our area - you can add a four (and probably more) references/letters. And that works out well for my four letters.

    With edjoin.org, we can send in as many as we want. I have about 10 letters. BUT for this job, I just submitted 3 (two Principals and 1 from a reading coach that this district loves! I decided to not put the superintendent from this district. I don't really know why I didn't.... I guess I have so many connections as it is, I didn't want to overdo it).

    Thanks guys!!!!!

    My Principal emailed the two principals where the two jobs are at (I only applied to one of them thgouh, and told them what a great employee I was and just wanted to let them know to really consider me. :))
