Letters of recommendation are a crucial part of your file. References should speak to an applicant’s ability to be a dynamic educator with leadership potential; to be an effective, supportive mentor for adolescents; and to work effectively with parents and colleagues.
Tip: It is always a good idea to provide your recommender with a copy of your resume!
Letters written on school or university letterhead are perfectly acceptable, but you may also use a Southern Teachers reference form. To use this form, first download it to your computer. Next, fill out the form. Save the completed form to your computer and finally, send it to Southern Teachers.
