Timothy got an 84 on his German test!!!! All because of you!!!!
Timothy told me that you are the first teacher who truly cares about his grades and how he is doing in class. This says a lot about today's teaching style and character. You are the last of the teachers who taught because they love to teach and not just to make the paycheck.
Thanks for caring!
Elaine, Timothy's mother
Week #2 Timothy gets 100!
Translation / Übersetzung
Anny was a native German and all correspondence sent to Ethel her distant cousin and fri/was always typed, making it much easier to read. Ethel suspected the worse when a handwritten letter arrived from Anny's niece, but could not read the details.
Ed was hired to translate this family letter. Ethel was grateful for Ed's prompt translation announcing the passing of Anny.
