Letter of Recommendation

I've never before been asked to write a professional letter of recommendation. I guess no one has been desperate enough. Following is my attempt. I'm not completely happy with it, but I'm not sure how I might have improved it. Suggestions/feedback/input appreciated.

To Whom It May Concern:

I have had the privilege of a professional association with Analiza X for more than three years. We have worked together as classmates throughout a Masters of Education program, as student teachers in a co-teaching environment in Hawaii’s top-ranked public elementary school, and as elementary teachers in the XXX Complex of schools on Oahu, Hawaii. During this time I have had the opportunity to work with, and learn from, Ms. X as she progressed through her coursework in an exemplary manner, achieved certified teacher status in Hawaii, and became Grade Level Chair at XXX Elementary School.

Ms. X’s many strengths are highlighted by her ability to engage student interest in academic subjects by presenting lessons in a practical, real-world context. Ms. X calls upon a diverse background, including experience in marketing, high-tech, and health & physical fitness to encourage an active participation in and enthusiasm for learning among her students.

Ms. X demonstrates a high level of awareness of each student as an individual while simultaneously monitoring and managing her classes as a whole. She is quick to develop a rapport with students both individually and as a class. She works similarly well with her professional peers, being a strong organizer and natural leader, as evidenced by her rapid advancement to grade level chair.

As it has been a privilege working with Ms. X, so to is it a privilege to offer this brief note on her behalf. If I may be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
