A sample LinkedIn recommendation:
I have known Tracy Prosper for several years in my capacity as a school principal. She was an exceptional student in school and later as a substitute teacher in this school. Tracy brings enthusiasm to the teaching profession and to the students in her classroom. Her love of learning is evident in the lessons she plans and the way in which she directs the students to stay on task. She has a B.A and B.Ed and has training in the Guided Reading program of Fountas and Pinnel. I highly recommend her to any school district in the country.
