Definitely find someone who knows your strengths well and who likes you enough to put the effort into writing you a good reference letter. I personally think a reference letter from a community member who can talk about your extracurriculars is more valuable than a teacher. You're probably going to send in a transcript anyway and your marks will speak for themselves.

I suggest you find the person who thinks your a really great person, regardless of their position, they should be able to write a truthful reference letter.
