Dear Mrs. Johnson,
I want to commend you for your work as a sixth grade teacher. I know that kids that age aren’t easy to deal, coming into puberty and nowadays tackling more and more options that can get them into trouble. You seem to handle it with ease and a cool resolve, which is really rare for most sixth grade teachers. I should know, as a parent. I hear the way some parents talk about their children’s school teachers at soccer practice and it breaks my heart. On the good side, it warms my heart to know that Ashley has such an amazing role model to meet for class everyday.
Ashley talks incessantly about how “cool” you are. (She rarely says anyone is “cool,” so that must really mean a lot, coming from her!)
Thank you for your patience with the kids and for always being available to talk with me, whenever I’ve needed to about Ashley’s performance in school.
You are an A+ in my book! I just wanted to let you know and thank you for all that you do.
