Email from a 5th grade teacher about the girls in her class [View all]

I cannot express to you how absolutely wonderful this group of girls has been. I feel like Iím usually sending home e-mails about ďgirl drama,Ē but these eight ladies have been just the opposite. They are empathetic and patient and genuine. I always have girls that want and try to be this way; they are very tolerant of others who are different or donít fit in. These girls are way beyond tolerant. They are accepting. They value everyone and they are leaders that encourage others to do the same. Itís kind of surreal and I am so thankful for all of them. They have read books about all kinds of different disabilities and have used that knowledge to help younger friends in our special education programs. At lunch they found every child that was sitting alone and invited them to eat with our class. This was not just a do-something-nice-feel-good idea. They befriended these children ALL year. One of the girls, who really struggles with social skills, remarked that she had never had a friend before this year. Another said that no one ever talked to her outside of class. I canít imagine what those girls used to feel, and I donít think your girls have any idea the lasting mark that they have left on the lives of others. Thank you so much for raising such amazing young ladies.
