I hope you are having an excellent day. I wanted to first thank you so much for your moving story you told at the Echoes and Reflections seminar. It was by far the most interesting and touching seminar I have ever been to. Having the chance to meet you was an experience I will remember for the rest of my life!
After the seminar I sang your praises to my department and my principal at Trumbull High School and they all would really love to meet you and give our students an opportunity to hear your courageous story. I was wondering what your availability was in April to possibly come and speak at Trumbull High School.
Let me know at your earliest convenience. I really look forward to hearing from you!!
My dear Anita,
Words cannot describe the power of your impact on each of us who listened to your story yesterday.
I am certain that the seeds you planted will take root and sprout. In fact, the e-mail below that I received last night is proof.
Quinnipiac University is interested in offering the program again in April. Let me know if there are any dates that don’t work for you. Also, I’d like to schedule a program for Hamden Middle School. Let me know if there are dates that work for you. I will get someone to drive you.
You re the best.
I would just like to thank you and the other presenters for a memorable and incredible conference. I spent my family dinner “being a witness” with my two teenage children who were enraptured by the binder. We literally spent an hour going through some of the lessons together. In my 23 years of teaching, this was hands down the most influential workshop I have ever attended. Thank you and I hope to work with you in the future in some way.
Please pass my deepest appreciation onto everyone -especially Anita.
