    I know that I have to have a math, english, and a physics/chemistry teacher write evaluations for me. The math and english are already taken care of and have been submitted to west point. My only concern is the chemistry. My 11th grade chem teacher retired from teaching and has moved onto being a pharmacist. He coached me for two years, I did really well in his class, and he knew me quite well. Is there anyway he can still write the evaluation even though he currently does not teach at my school?

    Speak to your USMA adviser first, but my initial reaction is that since this teacher just retired (and just because he's retired he still holds a teaching certificate) and was your teacher in 11th grade, his recommendation would be accepted.
    Honestly, I believe that if you were to contact him and request a recommendation he would be very honored that you made the effort to include him in your application process.
    If you don't know how to get in contact with him go through your administration. They can contact that teacher (school systems must maintain contact information for retirement purposes) and either have them contact you directly or provide you their contact information.

    PS:
    Good Luck!

    thanks for your help...my guidance counselor said it may be ok but she would have to run it by the principal.
