Because my school acquired a new, finished building for this school year, a lot of the things at my school are totally screwed up.
Anyways, because of this, it's been pretty impossible to contact teachers for recommendation letters, especially in the English and Math departments (which the new building houses).
I already have a science teacher writing a recommendation letter, so I wanted a Humanities rec letter. Since all my history teachers either strongly disliked me or treated me like I wasn't there, my foreign language teacher has pretty bad English, and the one art teacher I had was from sophomore year, I feel strongly that I would like one of the English teachers I had last year would be the best Humanities rec.
Basically, I am reduced to needing to contact this teacher over email since I can't find any underclassmen that I know who have him to ask which classroom he's in.
Is requesting a rec over email the same as requesting one in person? And also how do I put the subject of the email to not make it blatantly obvious that I am making a request/demand?
