Need to pick a teacher for rec letters – any advice?

Hey guys! So, I gotta choose a teacher (or two) to write my college recommendation letters, but I'm not sure how to decide. What should I think about when picking the best teacher for the job? Any tips or tricks you can share from your own experience? Thanks for your help!

When choosing a teacher for your recommendation letter, consider these factors:

1) a teacher who knows you well and can speak to your strengths and character;

2) a teacher from a subject related to your intended major, if applicable;

3) a teacher who taught you in your junior or senior year, as they may have more recent examples of your work.

Make sure to give them ample time to write the letter and provide any necessary information about your accomplishments or activities. Good luck!
