Goodbye Letters to Students

Over the weekend I finished writing goodbye letters to all of my freshman English students. After nearly 60 letters, I feel it was a job well done. :) I've always been a fan of writing personal letters to people. I used to write them to family members for Christmas or New Years and felt it was appropriate to share supportive sentiments with the students I've grown to love during my student teaching experience. They're not very long letters, just a few distinct messages for each student. I feel the more individualized education can be, the better. So, this is one way I hoped to show individual attention and support for this group of students. In addition to handing out letters during my final week of student teaching, I'm asking students to fill out a survey, providing another opportunity for feedback from students about what they learned and how I taught. The form students will fill out is uploaded below:
