To whom it May Concern:

We have had the privilege of knowing Red for the past 8 years and were fortunate to have her within our employ for the past year. Red worked with our two adopted children, Beth (6) and Marne (5), on a regular and pretty intensive basis for five months. They are active, bright children with opposite tempraments (one is very strong-willed, extremely active and independent and the other is very cerebral but on the timid, sedentary side needing lots of nuture). Red engaged them both-simultaneously-creatively, calmly, and beautifully.

Red is extremely bright, literate and values education, especially reading, very highly. She has exhibitied such creativity in finding various ways to appeal to/motivate our children, keeping them both miraculously "on task"- and setting (and enforcing) appropriate limits with their behavior. She has been extremely patient (we suspect she even surprised herself) and has always managed to exceed any expectations (admittedly high) we might have for their educational enrichment. Red offered a magical blend of being fun but firm, listening to and determining their desires and needs, was quietly determined and perservering about helping our kids be accountable for their behavior, actions (and messes). Beth and Marne always were (and still are) very excited about spending time with her but understand that Red will not tolerate "any funny business."

We feel so fortunate to have such a wonderful exposure and learning opportunity for our children and regret that Red was not able to continue due to her heavy academic demands. We enthusiastically recommend Red for any endeavor she wishes to pursue. If you have any questions, please do not heasitate to contact us.

So, would I get the job?

It doesn't matter where or what, would that kind of a professional recommendation do it for you?

Yes. It speaks to your character in several key areas that employers are looking for. You're being responsible (the care of the children). You're leading them (educationally). You're keeping people on task. And you can work in a team situation (with the parents to care for the children).

Glad you made it safely out of the elevator--close call. Sorry about the coffee pot--I'm addicted to coffee as well. Your mother worked in GR--small world.

How did the AdultFriendFinder party go? Feel free to e-mail me sometime goodandevil_74 at oohay (if you want in your spare time) or drop by my blogs (mostly ramblings like many people).

Absolutely, I would hire you based on that recommendation, sounds like you work with children very well and would be a wonderful role model and teacher. Definitely a keeper to add to the resume references

It's this Saturday, I'll definitely fill in details when I get back from it. Shit, I think everyone who is not planning on attending is expecting me to have some good stories when I get back. I guess that means bring condoms for everyone and anyone and stay slow and steady on the alcohol so I remember all of it! Cheers!

Nice comments on your character. Of course, references aren't enough to get the job, you'll also need that dazzling personality to show up for the interview!
