I am not a new poster but have changed name as I was identified (and I bet identifier will know who I am with this name, but she is nice, so I don't mind! Just didn't want others to out me!)
I am a teacher and I had a teacher training student recently (final placement) who was a great teacher and a lovely person. She is only 22, and having a terrible time. Her father (only 47 years old) is suffering terminal cancer, and was recently adnitted to a Hospice. My student is very close to her parents, and was often distressed after school and at weekends about the ravages the disease was having on her very much loved Dad.
Today, I had a phone call from a school at which my student had an interview this morning. The Head teacher told me that my student was in the last two applicants, and could I add anything, as her referee, to make them choose her over the (experienced) other person. Well. I basically said she could do anything short of fly, and she just texted me to say she got the job, and she was so happy her dad was so proud, and that he knew she got a job.
I have never had a school ask me this before, and it's a bit weird, but I am so happy that a: H got the job, as she will be a super teacher, and b: she knows her dad knows, too.

Thank you samjam, for saying I am nice . I name changed too, cos I felt so awful about the whole thing.
Yay to your student, clearly had an ace mentor...jobs are so short in the primary sector and an absolute bastard to find (as per my current experience) so absolutely fab she has one.
