I'm sure this topic has been covered on here before, but I did a quick search and couldn't find what I was looking for. Other than a Principal/VP, who are good people to get letters of recommendation from? I just found a job posting for an online teaching position that I'm very interested in. I know this program well as I worked with it with many of the child actors I taught on set last year. This would be my ideal job and the ideal school. I really want to apply and I really want to at least get an interview! However, I don't have any good letters of recommendation. The school I'm at now only asked for references, and my current letters are kind of outdated. I have one from my master teacher during student teaching, the assistant director at a camp I counseled at for three summers, and one from a director of another camp I worked at. I don't want to ask my P or VP for a letter as I don't want to let them know I'm looking elsewhere. What should I do? I might contact some parents who I worked with on sets (especially the parents who use this particular online school program), but will those be good enough? Could I have a fellow teacher here at school (who knows I'm looking elsewhere) write a letter for me? Should I contact some old employers and ask them to write one? One of my college professors was supposed to write one long ago and never did...and now I'm really wishing I would have gotten one from her. Hmm....any ideas?
