I can’t believe it is already time to write a Kairos letter to the youngest of my 3 daughters. Your high school years have flown by. Sometimes it is difficult for the youngest to carve out a unique place in the family and stand out in their own right. However, this is definitely NOT the case for you, Maria. You are remarkable. Your strength, resilience, self-acceptance, and intelligence are unparalleled amongst your peers. Although life has thrown you some physical curve balls, you have met each and every challenge with courage and perseverance. When others might have thrown a tantrum, felt sorry for themselves, or relied on others to carry the burden, you have brushed yourself off, gotten back up and moved forward. Although your determination
Hi there. My name is Genevieve (Jenna for short) and I’m proud to say I am a part of CCU’s class of 2019. I come from a small town in the middle of nowhere in Harford County, Maryland. I have two younger sisters, so I’m the first one of the family to tackle this adventure. I’m planning on majoring in communication with a minor in photography. I discovered my passion for writing/business/broadcasting when I was placed into a journalism class in tenth grade. I never thought I’d end up being the business manager and one of many reporters on a staff that created a 20-page newspaper every month for the next three years, and a main anchor on our daily morning announcements.
As you may know me already, my name if Felipe Del Angel and I am from Penitas, TX. I am currently 18 years old of age and will be turning 19 on October 23. I recently attended Thelma R. Salinas STEM Early College High School. Many do not know this but I was actually in the first graduating class of this high school and I am honored to be apart of the first graduating class of Thelma R Salinas STEM ECHS. Throughout my high school years in this new school, there were unforgettable memories. Memories that can’t be forgotten. This was not the same as a regular high school. It felt like home, with only 120 students per grade level, the environment was so easily to adapt amongst each other. And that is what the real world is all about.
During sophomore year, we’d practice annotating, and analyzing poetry for inspirational purposes and to perfect our craft. Poetry is my
So the other day me and my friends were casually discussing some of the teachers we've had over the past few years (the good and the bad hahaha) and I brought you up because so many of us had you! After that I just could not stop thinking of all

To my high school English teacher, Mrs. Timmons for challenging me to become a creative writer. To my classmates and alumni from Hoke County High School, thank you for your support and motivation.
I am taking this opportunity to give my personal recommendation of Mr. Joseph Zeccola to be an LAUSD Teacher of the Year because of his unique talent in connecting with students and educating in a creative and engaging fashion. Mr. Zeccola is a very upbeat, funny and outgoing, teacher, who
It has been awhile since I wrote a letter to you. Are you enjoying your summer? Summer flew by, and next week I will, somehow, find myself at NJIT. On the first Monday of September, I will sit on my first undergraduate lecture. I am ever so excited to meet new people, delve into another environment, and learn something new. At the same time, I feel nervous about moving onto college, where I will have to confront all sorts of obstacles to achieve success.
Dear Beautiful first born child of mine, As of right now I am writing to you where you will one day be sitting. I hope that my first born is a boy named Elliott, but if you have a different name or you are a girl i still will love you the same. I am seventeen and at the end of my senior year. I hope that when you are a senior you like school so much more than i do. I am not the biggest fan of school, but I never have been. I hope that when you are in school there is no dress code. The biggest fight every student has with authority here is about the dress code. Jackson County's dress code in 2017 is a bit ridiculous. You can not wear shorts, tank tops, and basically the color white without getting sent to iss (in school suspension).
The day was November 9th, 1996. It was the first snowfall of the year and the powdery substance frosted the chilled ground. An anxious man could be seen pacing in front of the hospital door; he was attempting to snuff out the panic that was swirling in his stomach. As a first time parent he was concerned with the variety of problems that could occur; however, he was also ecstatic that he would soon get to meet his daughter.
It’s been so very long since we last met I almost convinced myself that you would have forgotten me. But I couldn’t forget you, and I always meant to write to you. Words can’t describe how much your missed here. No matter what you will always be in my heart. I knew I would think about you, because you were a wonderful professor. Since I had my daughter I had faced so many obstacles to over the years but I’m about to graduation next year for BS Biology. I love to see you if your still in NU, and I love you prof: Karen Spikes.

At my first visit, I introduced the students to Esther's work, and some of my own. I then shared a few digital poems. Again the work of others and one of my own. We did a brief writing exercise and talked about how the poems we were reading together could be digitized to spark their creative thinking. I left them with the challenge of creating an original digital poem using a poem of their own or another that they identified with. They were given complete creative freedom to create digital poems using any resources they
Hello Ms. Hutch, Sorry to bother you on your day off. I'm writing this because I feel like my grade on the "Poetry Portfolio" assignment should be higher than what it is. A lot of time and hard work was put in to this assignment and I feel like I was graded wrong on some categories in the rubric. Whenever you have the chance, I would really like to talk to about my grade and also, what we plan to do in the future of this English course and how I can be better prepared.
