I wanted to let you know that I truly appreciate the support, encouragement, and direction you provided me during the months we worked together. I really felt like you were with me every step of the way. Without your enthusiasm and belief in me, I’m not sure I would be where I am now.

I’ve enclosed a letter from my superintendent. You are the one of the first people that I felt compelled to share it with!

I can see you smiling as you read it at your desk. The sun is shining through all those wonderful windows in your office. I’m glad I have a picture of it in my mind since I can’t be there to share it in person!! Take care!
