To Whom it May Concern:

I am submitting this letter of recommendation for Mr. Michael Whalen. Michael was a student in a physical education teaching methods class I taught in Fall, 1991. Mr. Whalen performed well in this class both academically and when delivering three micro-peer teaching presentations. I found his written and oral communication skills to be above average when compared to most of his peers in this class. Michael has appeared to develop a commitment to our profession and should be successful in most student-teaching/coaching environments. He has also maintained an active lifestyle and he has a good level of physical fitness. Given the opportunity, Mr. Whalen should continue to develop effective teaching skills.
