    Hello,

    My english teacher for 11th grade quit and moved to another school. I don't know if I'll be able to get ahold of him to write me a recommendation letter to USNA. I know I need one from my junior year math teacher and my junior year english teacher. In case I cannot contact him, which other english teacher should write me a recommendation letter, my sophomore year english teacher or my senior year english teacher? I want to turn in my application as early as possible, so my senior year teacher would have barely gotten to know me by the time I want to turn it in. Also, he's going to be new to the school, so he knows not a bit about me or my accomplishments. Meanwhile, my sophomore year english teacher knows me very well, and I know for sure that he would write me an amazing letter. Which one do I choose? Thanks.

    I believe in the instructions it asks for a math teacher and an English teacher that taught you in either 11th or 12th grade.

    Yes, 12th grade teachers work too! DS asked for and received rec's from 12th grade math and english teachers. He met with them early in the school year, explained the situation and timeline, and after a couple of months in school to give them time to evaluate my DS, they wrote the recs... The best to you

    Most teachers care about their students irregardless if they quit or moved to another school. Have you asked for the contact information from the school? Other teachers? Department chair? Someone has to have their phone or personal email. If not, it will have to be your senior teacher (as already mentioned---your sophomore teacher will NOT be accepted). I would track down your junior year teacher, I'm sure you will have success.
