It’s admissions season everywhere. Applications, essays, and the like are filling admissions offices in schools across the land. Brookstone is no exception.
Our teachers are asked to write recommendations for our students all the time, especially for juniors and seniors applying to college. But here at Brookstone, our teachers really KNOW our students, so it’s a much easier task. It’s still a time-consuming endeavor, but it is certainly easier to write recommendations for students you know well and care deeply about.
So when I received this email from one of our teachers, it was simply too good not to share.
Greetings. I am an admissions officer at Harvard College who is the 1st reader for the state of Georgia. I am spending today as I have all adjoining days, reading applications. Sometimes I encounter something so genuine and original that I am compelled to reach out and say thank
you. This is such a time. You make your student come to life in a way 99% of recommenders do not. Do your students appreciate you enough? If not, let me assure you that I do. Well done colleague!
This is the kind of teacher we have at Brookstone. This is what an investment in students looks like. Anyone can write a recommendation and be done with it, crossing one more thing off the to-do list. But at Brookstone – for students and teachers alike – it’s personal.
Our faculty is just the best.
Well done, indeed!
