Letter from Student
It is with great pleasure that I compose this letter of recommendation for Mr. Mack Tribble. Mr. Tribble has been a
student of mine for the past two semesters and has left an impression on me already as a comprehensive educator. Mack is a
remarkable learner and has proven himself as a practitioner as well. In fact, in my twenty-five years of experience in this
profession, I rarely encounter the level of sophistication and competency that Mack possesses.
As a graduate student and career changer Mr. Tribble gives new meaning to the word dedication. His school work is estimable
and his people skills are extraordinary. In the area of lesson planning, Mr. Tribble is thoughtful and creative. Grounded
in constructivism, Mack will engage his students in meaningful learning with higher order thinking and real life application.
He has a great combination of extreme creativity with brilliant organizational skills. Furthermore, he is a reflective practitioner,
and thus teaches his students to engage in reflective practices.
Mr. Tribble’s graduate program for career changers is in a co-hort situation. As a member of the co-hort Mack
has proven himself as a leader. He is very well respected and well-liked by his group. A father, a husband, a student, and
a provider for his family, Mack is not afraid of hard work. His work load capacity impresses me. Moreover, Mack Tribble is
always going the extra mile for his classmates and for all of the work he hands in to all of his instructors. Additionally,
he has been well received in all of his field placement experiences including student teaching, for which I serve as his supervising
In summary, Mack Tribble is an educator of the highest quality who makes
me proud to be a member of the teaching profession. He will be an asset to any school district that is fortunate enough to
have him. I recommend him enthusiastically.
