A Letter from Mishel

Hi!

I want to thank you for the opportunity you have given me.  During this last month of my internship, I have developed various abilities.  The most important of them is to have patience, be more affectionate, and more understanding.

At first, I did not think that I would be able to get along with the other teachers, but as I got to know them better, I was able to share with them a little more.  I have learned that I am able to do things well.   During this time, they gave me the opportunity to speak with the junior high girls about self-esteem.  One of them got up and thanked me for the talk that I gave.  She thanked me and shared with everyone that she did not like herself, but now thanks to my talk, she liked herself a little more.  This made me determined to make the students feel good and understand that they are equal and that they all have different qualities that are unique to them.  It was an honor to talk to the girls and for them to put such confidence in me. To be with them in this stage and to be the adult that I needed when I was a child.  It was more than a pleasure.  Perhaps I am not the best teacher on the planet, but to know that I have already made a footprint, fills me with pride and satisfaction.

About my responsibilities at home: I am at the point of completing 18 years.  This gives me many responsibilities.  Many times, I feel pressured by them.  My parents have told me a new stage is beginning and it may be hard.   I learned to listen to them and feel empathy.  This has improved their confidence in me a lot. 

Without anything more to add, waiting for the end of my internship, I thank you for the opportunity to grow as a professional and as a person.

I sign off!.
