Earlier this fall, the following email was sent to Ms. Grodus from a former student. It is edited and reprinted with permission from the author.
Hey this is Libby Schooley. I thought I would share something with you. I just started college and my first writing assignment was a literacy narrative. We were asked to write about a time when our views on reading or writing was changed. I chose to write about you and the impact you made in my writing. Even though I hated how many writing assignments you gave us my junior year, I just wanted to say thank you! You really did make a difference in the way I write and I am truly grateful for that. Without you, I don’t think I would have gotten an A on my first college paper You are a great teacher and by far one of my favorites.
NPS Teachers make a difference. It is not always about a standardized test score. It is about preparing our students for life beyond the K-12 setting. Thanks for sharing this with us Libby!
