           February 3, 2011

           To Whom It May Concern:

           Mrs. Debra Bassett has asked me to submit a recommendation letter to support her application
           for a school psychology internship position at your school district and I am very pleased to
           present her to you . I have known Debra for two years as a student in courses that relate to
           measurement, intelligence, academic achivement, and behavior/personality assessment.

           Debra distinguished herself as one of our best educational specialist students . Her academic
           work has been exceptional. She participated in classroom discussions posing critical questions
           and when appropriate offering constructive feedback. In program faculty meetings regarding
           student performance she received excellent feedback from all faculty regarding her
           coursework, interaction with children, parents and school staff. In fact, I would rank her
           performance in the top three to five best students in our program during the last five years. In
           recogntition of exceptional work the faculty awarded her a recognition of achievement
           certificate and a small scholarhip . Personally, I have asked Debra to serve as a teaching
           assistant in my advance assessment courses, a position typically offered to advanced doctoral
           level students. Exceptional and outstanding are two words that come to mind as I observed her
           teaching last week. I am most certain that as with her university coursework, you will find her
           to be dependable and conscientious.

           In addition, please note Debbie's strong work history, including her experience as a preschool
           teacher and in dealing with families as a family law paralegal. Debbie's strong work history
           includes roles related to her future as a school psychologist, including acting as a consultant,
           counselor, analyst, and teacher . She has had experiences tackling challenges in the classroom,
           addressing needs of parents and administrators, and meeting the academic and emotional
           needs of the students.

           Debra combines above average intellectual capabilities with strong motivation, a warm
           personality and excellent clinical skills. This combination invariably spells professional success,
           and I think you will see this happening very early in her internship experience. It is therefore
           with great confidence that I recommend her to you.

           If you would like me to provide additional information, please do not hesitate to call or write .

 To Whom it may concern :

        It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Debbie Bassett for an internship
 with your organization . I have known Debbie for the past 2 year and have been her
 instructor in courses for academic interventions, crisis intervention and instruction for
 severe and low incident disabilities. Debbie has been an exceptional student in all
 respects. Her interest, initiative and contributions to class show insight and knowledge
 with respect to working with children with disabilities and their families . Moreover,
 Debbie's personal demeanor is one of confidence and compassion .

        In each class, Debbie went beyond typical expectations . Her desire is truly to
 learn as much information as possible. It is not uncommon for Debbie to have
 completed a large portion of the readings prior to the first day of class. Debbie has also
 shown initiative in seeking additional information , readings and activities. I encouraged
 Debbie to consider the doctoral program in school psychology . I understand her desire
 and need to complete the Ed.S and pursue her career. However, I would like to stress
 that Debbie has the knowledge , skill, insight and professionalism to be a successful
 doctoral student. Thus, it goes without saying that she will make an exceptional intern
 and practitioner.

         Debbie has a strong interest in working with children with Autism Spectrum
 Disorder. She has approached me several times to gain additional information,
 resources and readings. Furthermore, she has expressed interest in participating in a
 research study I am conducting on the effects of LEGO Therapy on social competence
 for children with ASD . I am delighted to have Debbie join the project.

         I recommend , without hesitation, Debbie for an internship. She will be a
 wonderful asset to any organization that hires her. Beyond giving Debbie a professional
 recommendation , I also would like to state that I would feel comfortable with her working
 with my own child . As both a mom and a professional , this is the strongest
 recommendation I can make. I would be happy to speak further to Debbie's exceptional
 skills. Please feel free to contact me at kathrine.hak@unco .edu or (970) 351-1687.

Re:       Debra Bassett




To Whom It May Concern:

       I am writing this letter on behalf of Debra Jean Bassett to recommend her for
employment as a school psychologist. Debra was employed in my law office for approximately
six and a half years from 2002 through 2008 as a legal secretary/paralegal in the family law area.
For the last five years of her employment, Debra also served as the office manager for three
attorneys and a staff of three people.

        Debra is an extraordinary person with the ability to excel in any field. In her role as a
paralegal in the family law area, Debra had daily contact with clients and children who were in
stressful situations and in need of assistance. She is an extremely efficient and bright person who
was able to handle every challenge in the office in an effective manner. She truly has exceptional
interpersonal skills and was able to establish rapport with parents and children as well as other
attorneys and court personnel.

       Debra's role as a paralegal required her to understand and apply legal mles and evidence
to specific case situations. In accomplishing this responsibility, Debra was creative, organized
and thorough. She was able to work independently and was able to meet short timelines when
necessary. She always had a clear understanding of the issues and the facts in each case. She
always completed her work in a timely and thorough manner.

       I never worked with anyone who was more capable than Debra, or who was more of a joy
to have in the office. In six and a half years, I don't think she ever had a bad day. Debra's
commitment and ability were superior to anyone with whom I have worked with over a period of
35 years in the legal field.

        I am married to a teacher and both my wife and myself have observed in Debra all of the
capabilities of an exceptional educator. She is able to understand and relate to people in every
situation. She has a remarkable capacity to identifY issues and address them appropriately and
effectively, and she is especially attuned to the needs of children.

      Debra will be a tremendous asset to the educational field and she has my highest
recommendation for your con.c;;ideration. If you have any further questions with regard to Debra's

Debra was employed in my law office for approximately six and a half years from 2002 through 2008 as a legal secretary/paralegal in the family law area. For the last five years of her employment, Debra also served as the office manager for three attorneys and a staff of three people. Debra is an extraordinary person with the ability to excel in any field. In her role as a paralegal in the family law area, Debra had daily contact with clients and children who were in stressful situations and in need of assistance. She is an extremely efficient and bright person who was able to handle every challenge in the office in an effective manner. She truly has exceptional interpersonal skills and was able to establish rapport with parents and children as well as other attorneys and court personnel. Debra's role as a paralegal required her to understand and apply legal mles and evidence to specific case situations. In accomplishing this responsibility, Debra was creative, organized and thorough. She was able to work independently and was able to meet short timelines when necessary. She always had a clear understanding of the issues and the facts in each case. She always completed her work in a timely and thorough manner. I never worked with anyone who was more capable than Debra, or who was more of a joy to have in the office. In six and a half years, I don't think she ever had a bad day. Debra's commitment and ability were superior to anyone with whom I have worked with over a period of 35 years in the legal field. I am married to a teacher and both my wife and myself have observed in Debra all of the capabilities of an exceptional educator. She is able to understand and relate to people in every situation. She has a remarkable capacity to identifY issues and address them appropriately and effectively, and she is especially attuned to the needs of children. Debra will be a tremendous asset to the educational field and she has my highest recommendation for your con.c;;ideration.
