Thank you for being the most supportive, open minded and caring teacher I have ever had. Before junior year, I never really liked or did that well in English. I never made a connection with what I was reading or felt passionate about what I was writing. In your class, I feel empowered, intelligent, and that I really do have a voice. I have learned so much this year about injustice and Black history, but most importantly, how to understand different perspectives. Your class has given me the tools I needed to have deeper conversations with my peers about the society we live in. Not only has your class given me these tools, it's changed the way I feel about school. I never felt passionate or so interested in what I was learning. And it's all because you have made your class environment so welcoming and really a safe space to participate. In all my educational experience, I have never learned as much as I have in your class. I'm so grateful to have had a teacher like you.
