I wanted to thank you for being such an incredible teacher. Logan has thoroughly enjoyed being a part of your eighth period class. He said you make class fun and really engage the kids in discussions. He also told me you extended the deadline on their project because you wanted quality work and you knew they had a lot going on this week. I appreciate a teacher who can adapt to the needs of her students, while at the same time letting them know that your expectations are high for the work they turn in. Logan's strengths have traditionally been geared more towards math and science. Even though his grades qualified him for Honors Literature, he has always chosen the College Prep level because English has been his least favorite subject. However, he told me this year that your class is his favorite. Hallelujah! I love watching his enthusiasm for your class. Thank you again for all of your hard work each and every day. You take time to say kind things and email your students thoughtful messages and I am here to tell you that you are making a difference.
