Dr. D,


  Hello, its Michael. I wanted to take your Evolution/Science and Religion class this fall - it sounds great - but I am busy working outside of Barstow for SWCA right now. I wanted to know if I can have your permission to use you as a reference - I have just been accepted to attend level 2 studies at the School of Archaeology and Ancient History, University of Leicester, U.K.

I will do the fall semester via computer, then, most likely in March attend on campus. They have some classes I am really interested in such as archaeological theory and medieval archaeology. I hope to see you in person soon, I have learned so much from you over the years and I am beside myself that I am now making a living doing archaeological fieldwork (even some lab and report work!). You have truly made a substantial contribution to myself and my new career, and I am very thankful. Good luck this semester,

                                                             - Michael
