Letters of Recommendation

Letters of Recommendation

ALWAYS ask a teacher if he/she will be willing to write you a letter BEFORE you submit their name to an on-line institution or summer camp.

Please note if there is a specific area of interest you are applying for.

Give the letter writer enough time to write you a good letter.

Writing a letter of recommendation requires input from you. I spend a good amount of time on each letter—trying to be as specific as possible. In order to do that, I need you to answer the following questions before I write your letter.

  • · What classes have you taken with me and when?
  • · What specific activities or units did we work on in class that really resonated with you? Give an example.
  • · What did you take to Ohlone Festival? List in chronological order. Describe your part in finding/directing/creating the piece. List any awards/finalist/commendations
  • · What shows have you done with me and what was your part? List in chronological order. (Roles or positions you found particularly meaningful and why.)
  • Cast? Specific Role.
  • Crew? Specific role.
  • · What do you plan to major in or study in college?
