To whom it may concern,

I am very pleased to write on behalf of James Metta, with whom I have worked closely for 3 consecutive years at Mapleton University. Mr. Metta has all of the qualities that are central to being a high-quality employee: he is energetic, intelligent, ambitious, organized, and likable.

Over the course of the last two semesters, James worked as my classroom and technology assistant and I came to know him very well. We had the unique challenge of creating and piloting two brand new courses which involved a mixture of computer-based teaching and large-class lectures. Mr. Metta’s honest and intelligent feedback, strong work ethic, and technological knowledge were instrumental in making the courses successful.

I am confident that he has the intelligence, motivation, and professionalism to make an outstanding employee that would be highly respected by colleagues.

Sincerely,

Terry Middleton
