✋ Are you getting requests for letters of recommendation from your students? 

✋ Feel like you have NO time to recall everything about a student? 

✋ Did you just raise your hand!?

As much as I love writing letters about so many of my former students, it was a daunting task made more difficult when trying to recall their performance in my class. Plus, I didn’t always know what they were up to currently, and I really had to get creative when writing the letters.

I think ALL students should have to provide their teacher, counselor, or administrator with information if requesting a letter of recommendation.

Using this form, the letter basically writes itself!

I used general language in the wording of questions, and if something doesn’t apply, then a student can skip it.

I hope this works as well for you as it has for me.

Sections Include:

  • Student Info and Contact Info
  • Activites
  • Other Interests
  • Academics & Goals
  • Purpose of Letter
  • Family Information
  • Work Experience


  • Extended Response Section

The extended response section includes 9 questions for students to answer, including, but not limited to, questions about career, motivation, and unique traits.

I hope this makes your life easier!
