To whom it may concern: This letter is to give my support and recommendation in hiring Mrs. Kate Barloon for the Full-Time nanny position that is advertised on the website. My comments will speak to the experiences I had with Mrs. Barloon as a Montessori Preschool Teacher for three of our children. In addition to being an educator of littles, she also has directed the color guard and musicals at our local high school for many years. Currently, Read more she is an Instructional Associate for a student with special needs. She began at her current school as a Preschool Classroom Associate, when my husband, who was the Superintendent at the time, specifically recruited her. Mrs. Barloon has consistently demonstrated an ability to build positive relationships with people of all ages. Her kind and caring demeanor is valued by our community. She also possesses the backbone necessary to redirect and hold students accountable to high standards. She understands the skills and traits that are needed to help develop students to be successful in life. Mrs. Barloon is a people person with strong intuition and the ability to truly listen to others' needs. She is selfless and definitely an individual you want on your team.

She has earned my recommendation, and I believe that if you hire Mrs. Barloon, you will be hiring a candidate who not only has a proven track record of being an amazing instructor, but also an all-star human being.
