A Letter of Recommendation from a teacher for Daniel:
I am honored to write this letter to recommend Daniel Coursen as an outstanding student. I taught Daniel for 4th and 5 th grade and in my 20 years experience, I can say with no hesitation, Daniel is a one of a kind student. He excels with his academics, receiving Honor Roll/Straight A’s every marking period. He always goes above and beyond what is expected of him. For example, 5 th grade science fair projects were optional, but not for Daniel. He not only submitted a project, he represented our school at the county fair. He and his classmates helped me start a kindness campaign, Kind is the New Cool, and was selected as our class representative to speak on the local news. Creative and resourceful are two words to describe Daniel. Every day he’d excitedly bring in a new gadget or invention to share with our class that he created at home with common, every day materials. We often joked that we’d all want Daniel with us if we were ever stranded on a deserted island! Daniel always gives his best effort, is an enthusiastic learner, and is not afraid to take risks, but most importantly, more than his academic achievement, is his ability to share his heart with everyone. His willingness to help others, stand up for friends, and unselfishness never went unnoticed in our classroom. Every teacher should be so lucky to have a Daniel in their classroom.
