Sister Jean Laurich


St. Matthias School

Somerset, NJ 08873

Dear Sister Jean,

I wanted to personally thank you for the opportunity of


allowing me into the fourth grade classroom with Mrs.
Pennington. From the moment I entered St. Matthias, I was
welcomed with open arms by incredibly friendly staff,
students, and parents. This experience has not only shaped
me as a future educator, but also as a person.

The interactive and real world projects the students did in Mrs.
Penningtons class will definitely help me for the future in my
own classroom. Mrs. Penningtons dedication to student
success has been inspiring for me to observe. The students in
fourth grade are some of the kindest and most creative
students Ive ever met.

Thank you again for this opportunity to come into your school.

Sincerely,

Kimberly Traynor

Dear Mr. Gidaro,

I wanted to properly thank you for letting me learn, observe,

students and Mrs. Pennington my best, and I look forward to
seeing the great things the students of St Matthias go on to
