I found the letter kevin wrote to his teacher, don’t tell him I posted it or even read it. But for us it was very touching, and made us proud. As mentioned previously he is an honor student and has never missed a day of school in his life and he is nearly 15 years old.
Dear Mrs. &^&%^%&^%,
My name is Kevin &%(*(^*(^% and I just wanted to write to you so you could know more about me. i thnk the more information you and I share, will help us get to know each other better. I’m a freshman at the &^%^&%&^ High School and I enjoy being here, even though I have only been here for about 3 days. So far your on my list of favorite teachers because your a very nice person. I hope we don’t get too much homework in your class!
I was originally born in Thailand, a country in Southeast Asia and my family and I came to the US when I was about 3-4 years old. I’m fourteen and to this day I love being in America because it has many freedoms and opportunities around. My parents are now divorced, but both my parentshave found someone else that they care very much for. To be honest I ca’t speak my language, i know it sounds a bit silly, but it’s probably because I went to school early as a child and focused more on English than anything else.
My mother has developed good English skill and speaks English to me most of the time, but she also speaks her language to me and I can usually understand her. My best friends are Casey %$%$ and Ryan #!@#. Ryan is in the same class as me when I was in your room. This summer wasn’t very fun because of issues with friends and things like that. Ryan and I saw some movies most of the summer and that’s about it. Someday i hope to work with computers and if not that, I would like to become a chef and cook.
I came from !$%%!$$%@%^ Middle School by the way. So far my life is free from violence and drugs, I plan to stay this way all my life. People still get my last name wrong, but it doesn’t really bother me at all.
Well, thank you for your time. I hope I haven’t made you fall asleep or caused you to become bored from my letter. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens in your classroom throughout this year!
