Come as you are…
A Teacher’s Gratitude
Please accept my admiration of your courage in considering this important step toward achieving your personal, academic and career goals. It is you as an individual that inspire us as teachers. You help us walk a better path in life as we witness you doing the same.
Please know that we value you and will always do our best to support and guide you. This comes to you regardless of race, ethnicity, country of origin, language, age, physical ability, religion, educational background, sexual preference, gender identity, income level, learning style and personal history. The field of education would not be what they are without such diversity. We look forward to moving together with you towards a greater understanding of and skill in exploring and pursuing your goals.
With warm regards and respect,
Dorothy, proud teacher and academic advisor
