    Hello Everyone! I just graduated with my BSE in Elementary Education, and have been hunting madly for a job. However, I am getting a little hung up on applications. Is it appropriate to use the people who wrote you letters of recommendation as references? I didn't think it was, but I just wanted to check with everyone else here. I'm quite overwhelmed here! Thank you all! Stephanie

    Stephanie,
    You can use the people that wrote you letters of recommendation for references. On my list, I have more references- people that know me well, like my pastor, who doesn't have education experience but would be a good character reference. Good Luck!

    I use the same people that wrote me letters. Don't get discouraged while looking. There is a thread down in the New Teachers forum called applying for jobs. Lots of helpful tips in there.

    I would think those would be very credible reference. I don't see why not.

    I also use the people who wrote me letters as my references. I think that it's probably pretty common for people to do that.

    Don't forget to mention to the people you list as references, that you are doing so. Then they will no be caught off guard if they receive a call.
