    Oh Megan,
    You are making a difference. I LOVE this. Your dad was right — you take no prisoners — you are all about doing the job in love and making sure people understand the message. I admire and love you so much, even though you are an architect.

    Teaching rewards are few and far between and they almost always come from whom we least expect.

I hope you cherish this forever and that you realize what he wrote is great progress in terms of ESL.
    Good work teacher sister.
    Love, mo
