commented about the enthusiasm
and knowledge their teachers
demonstrated in the classroom, and
many praised their teachers for
their ability to relate to youngsters
on a personal as well as a profes-
sional level. One student wrote
about her teacher saying, "she
made education something pleasur-
able, instead of a dreadful ordeal,
by letting me spread my wings and
showing me the best way to fly."
"The students they have learned
much from their research and cre-

hard work will not only be the
grades received, but the knowledge
and interest students have gained.
These students are to be congratu-
lated and commended for a job
well done," said their teachers.
