When considering which teachers to select for teacher recommendations start with determining which three classes were your favorite. What did you do in class that was worthy of praise? Teacher evaluations should have anecdotes of your performance in class which might include participation in discussions, class presentations, group projects and essays. What character traits did you demonstrate? Some traits important to teachers are integrity, independence, initiative, responsibility, maturity, respect, perseverance, attention, punctuality, and going beyond expectations. Did you demonstrate intellectual curiosity, creativity and unique solutions to problems? What makes you stand-out so the teacher remembers you as a devoted student?Some classes may have been a challenge for you. Often the teacher who taught you in the class where you earned a C, has the most to say about your character and perseverance. Colleges are interested in tenacity and grit.
