My last week has shown its staying power. This week began with another amazing incident. Two weeks prior to the CAHSEE testing, my 10th graders and I read Night by Elie Wiesel. Since I had to teach a business letter unit, I decided to have my all of my 10th graders to write a business letter to Dr. Elie Wiesel. I had them "fix" any errors they made in terms of their formatting and taught them how to address the envelope. For some, it was a slowly painful process of writing and rewriting over and over again. I finally sent over 140 letters in a box.
And yesterday in my mail box at school, this letter appeared! A letter by Elie Wiesel himself! Imagine my delight! So I made copies for every single one of my 10th graders. They were so excited to get the letter.
I am a mother, wife, and English teacher. I moved from Korean when I was 23 without speaking English. Now I teach English. I want to be an Educational-Neuroscientist when I grow up!
