I know that this might not be WHERE I should put this...i just wanted to get some the quick attention. This is a thank you note to a principal for a LTS assignment and a request for a (prized) letter of recommendation. Thanks you for your help!: Dear ______, I would like to thank you for the opportunity you gave me to work at _______ Elementary School. Thank you for having the faith in my teaching abilities and for asking me to join your amazing staff. Working alongside __another teacher__, ___Literacy coach__, and the outstanding kindergarten support staff was an honor. I will truly value the experience I had to work with my Tier Three boys, to witness the extraordinary benefits of the Fountas and Pinnel L.L.I. program, to introduce Handwriting Without Tears to the children, to help to pilot the new kindergarten report cards, and to experience all of the responsibilities and joys that go along with leading a busy classroom. Thank you also for your advice on how to improve my communication with parents and staff. I appreciated you taking the time to work with me on goal setting. Besides all of these wonderful experiences, I take with me the memories of working with each of my precious students. I would like to believe that I touched their lives as much as they have changed mine. Once again, thank you so very much for giving me this opportunity. If there would ever be another chance to join your staff, I would be honored to work with you again. I was hoping that you would agree to write a letter of recommendation for me and to serve as one of my references in the future. My aspirations are to work as a full-time classroom teacher (preferably in District __this one__), and I would be so grateful to have a note from you in my resume folder. Thank you for your consideration of this request. __principal__, you are in charge of a wonderful school. Your leadership and diligence towards providing exceptional instruction is obvious, and stands out as a wonderful benefit to each and every student. It was a privilege to work for you. Sincerely, McKenna *** Whatcha think? I want to get it out to her no later than this afternoon.
