Feel free to modify this example as necessary. When composing a letter of recommendation for a teacher, it’s critical to be authentic and provide relevant examples. See this teacher (John Richards) recommendation letter sample, prepared by a fictitious school principal named Christopher Smith, to get a better idea of how it might appear:

Dear Principal Sarah Scott,

I’m writing to encourage hiring John Richards as a teacher at your institution. He was a history teacher at Acme High School under my supervision, as the school’s principal.

Richard was a trustworthy and organised coworker who was always the first to work on his syllabus and choose the best teaching strategies for each of his classes at the beginning of the school year. He also readily led our volunteering activities, including participating in reforestation efforts of areas close to our school.

John was one of our greatest teachers; he was firm but constantly looked for ways to increase student engagement during classes. One example is a history competition he initiated and organized, prompting students to write and reenact dialogues between two notable historical figures during an ancient historical event. This was well-recieved by the students and provided them with a wealth of historical knowledge. Since he started teaching at our school, our students who were enrolled in his classes, started receiving incredibly outstanding grades in this class.

Additionally, John consistently met my high standards for moral character and honesty. He handled a bribe offer from the parent of a senior high school student, who wanted their child to receive a mark they didn’t earn, as an example. Richard was discrete and cordial with the parent, but he turned down the offer right away.

Overall, Richard is a pleasure to work with because he is a committed teacher with a good outlook.  If I had the opportunity, I wouldn’t think twice about working with him once more.

Please feel free to contact me at [number] if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you so much.

Christopher Smith

Acme High School’s Principal
