2: Wendy, I just wanted to take the time to express my gratitude for everything that you have done for Jonah this year. I could not have asked for a better 2nd grade teacher for Jonah! Jonah was so fortunate to have you as his teacher. He had a wonderful year and I attribute that all to you. He loved going to school everyday and would do anything that he could to please you. I loved being able to help in your classroom, attend field trips, and be involved in whatever I could. I loved having the opportunity to come into your classroom every week and help you out.
3: You work so hard and I was always more than happy to do whatever I could to make things a little easier for you. Your loving nature, patience and compassion was ideal for Jonah. He is a complex kid and you really understood him. He has learned so much and come so far and I thank you for that. I look forward to working together again in a year when you have Lily or Nathan in your class. I hope that you have a wonderful, relaxing and fun summer! You deserve it! With Love, Melanie
