Letter of recommendation from a sophomore or junior year teacher

Hi there! Current junior wondering about who I should ask for college letters of recommendation.

One of my AP teachers from last year is who I'm considering asking because I performed well in the class, put in lots of extra effort on assignments/assessments, and feel that this teacher got to know me and my work ethic well. The only thing is that I had this teacher last year and don't consistently seem them for an extracurricular or anything else, but every once in a while we catch up.

On the other hand, the instructor for my directly career-related class and I also have good rapport. I've also put in lots of effort to her class. The only thing is that this class isn't a core class or graded on an honors/AP/dual enrollment scale.

I already know who I want to ask for one of my letters of recommendation, but don't know how to decide between asking these two teachers. None of the colleges I'd like to apply to require over 2 letters of recommendation, and I've heard that providing extra ones might hurt chances of getting in because they don't reveal anything new to my application. What should I do?/What do you recommend?

I believe it's great that you take some time out of your day to spend it playing lol beans, which you can find at lol beans Those kinds of games, as these function as a stress reliever, but if it becomes excessive to the point where you spend more time playing than you do focusing on your priorities, then it is really not a good idea to continue doing so.
