(following the receipt of their letter of recommendation)

Dear (name),

I would like to relay and express my deep gratitude to you for the recent letter of recommendation regarding (subject) that you provided for me (last week). I was hoping for something positive to be able to present to my potential future employers and faculty members at (new place of employment) and your letter was flawless.

You provided me with such an incredibly kind and generous collection of words of praise and positive feedback regarding my time spent teaching at (old) university. It has only served to strengthen my positive memories accumulated over my (5/10) years teaching and working with you.

(Name of old) university was a wonderful experience for me, both in career & academically as well as building strong and lasting friendships. It was an honour to have been part of the faculty and surrounded by such a variety of highly intellectual and interesting individuals that I can now call my friends.

Should you ever require a letter of recommendation for any future employment elsewhere or any help whatsoever, please do not hesitate to ask; It would be a pleasure.

Please do stay in touch, I will forward you my future contact details as soon as I have them.

All the best of luck to you in your future teaching career,
Kind regards,
(Your name)
