Teacher’s Day

teacher's day letter from lena

To Stephanie.

Hi! I’m Lena. Today is Teacher’s day in Korea. But, In America doesn’t have teacher’s day!! You know, I don’t speak well at English. My wish is to speak English well. So, I want to learn English a lot from you. I can understand your talk, but I can’t answer with your question. Please help me!!

Anyway, I will do what I can.

When I met you first, I was scared. Because, You are my first yellow hair foreigner in Korea. I think, You are very good teacher in academy. Another Class, we can speak Korean to Teacher. But aren’t you. I must speak English to you, so I can improve my speak in efficiency. Thank you, Stephanie!

You know what, Lena. You are only 12. You speak just fine at English. Thank you for the best present someone can get on Teacher’s Day.

    oh my goodness. that is perfect. i have a number of letters like this from when i taught english in japan. they always make me smile!

  3. i think i needed to read that letter. i feel like… it was a gift to me, too. sometimes i think seeing generosities in others — even when you aren’t a recipient — is a gift in and of itself.

    plus, c’mon, what is cuter than this letter? nothing.
