Dear Principal

Re: Teacher of the Year nomination

It is that time of the year for San Diego Public School to nominate one of its staffs for the covetous ‘Teacher-of-the-Year’ award.

I am pleased to put in my nomination for Mr. Alex Bunker, a Fifth Grade teacher at San Diego Public School. Although Mr. Bunker has only been with San Diego Public for three semesters, he has impacted his students tremendously and for the better. He was assigned an unruly class when he first joined San Diego Public, and within two semesters, he has turned his unruly class to be the best performing class of the year 2010.

As such, I feel strongly that Mr. Bunker should be awarded San Diego Public’s ‘Teacher-of-the-Year’ award this year. Not only do our students respect Mr. Bunker, his colleagues hold him in high esteem for the wonderful testimony he has produced with his class.

I hope that you will consider my nomination for Mr. Bunker favorably.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely

Karen Johnson
