I am a rising senior in high school (class of 2021) and I am struggling with which teachers to ask for a teacher rec. My junior year was basically cut in half since we were all sent home in March for remote learning and from there I only met with my teachers at most once a week.
I am currently struggling with which teachers to ask for a college letter of recommendation. I already know I want to ask my sophomore year English teacher since we got along really well and she’s probably my favorite teacher I’ve had throughout high school.
I also want to ask one of my math/science teachers, but I don’t think any of my STEM teachers from my junior year really got to know me very well. I normally open up more to my teachers towards the end of the school year, and I didn’t really get a chance to do that this year. I have good grades in my junior year STEM classes, but I don’t think I had a special connection or anything that really made me stand out to my teachers. I am thinking about asking my math teacher from sophomore year, who will also be my AP Calculus teacher this upcoming year (my senior year)- I spent lots of time with him after school and he definitely knows me better than my other STEM teachers.
I know it’s highly advised to have at least one junior year teacher recommendation, but given the circumstances do any of you have advice with what I should do? Thanks so much
