• If you are interested in asking me to write a recommendation letter for you, here are my guidelines:

    • I must have been your teacher for a full school year
    • All requests for a recommendation letter must be made via email at least 4 weeks in advance of the due date
    • Send me an email (jbarnes2@houstonisd.org) from your HISD email address requesting the recommendation and telling my your first deadline
    • Do NOT add me as a recommender on Naviance until I have agreed to write the recommendation
    • I will respond to your email to let you know if I am willing to write you a recommendation
    • If I agree to write a recommendation, I will ask you to answer a few questions to provide me with information that may be helpful when writing the recommendation
    • I will not provide you with copies of the recommendation or give them to you to submit; all recommendations will be submitted through Naviance/ApplyTexas/etc.
    • If you need me to mail a physical copy of the letter, you must provide a stamped envelope that has the address already written on it
