Administrator Recommendation Instructions

We are excited that your teacher has decided to apply for the 2022 Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation’s Summer Teacher Institute at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown on July 11-14. This Summer Teacher Institute is funded by private donors and offered at no cost to teachers or their school district.

In order for teachers to complete their application, we require a school/division administrator recommendation. Participant selection is based on both the content of their application and administrator recommendation. For your teacher to be considered for participation in the Summer Teacher Institute, you must submit a letter of recommendation by April 25, 2022.

When writing your letter of recommendation, please answer the following question:

Why is this teacher a good candidate for the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation’s Summer Teacher Institute, and how will their participation benefit students and teachers in your district?

Completed recommendation letters are due April 25, 2022 and can be submitted via:
