I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your kindness and teaching manner. You truly are a remarkable teacher and we were so blessed to have had you be Anthony`s first teacher at LC. You are kind and loving yet set such amazing boundaries with the students and I can`t even begin to tell you how sad we are that Anthony won`t be in orange class next year. What makes me happier is seeing joy much Anthony gravitated to you and how he absolutely adored you and how he would speak so highly of you to us and his grandparents. We feel so fortunate that teachers like yourself still exist and I pray that his teacher next year is half as amazing as you are. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for loving our son the way you do and enabling such great academic skills for him to progress further on at LC. We love you and will definitely stop by your classroom often to say hello. Hope you have a phenomenal summer!!!! See you soon.
