Thank a Teacher:
“Thank you for guiding and directing me and the rest of the Performing Arts class through the Guys and Dolls production. We would simply be lost and uncertain if it weren't for your constant, tireless efforts, and I hope you are very aware that your competence and knowledge throughout each lesson are never disregarded. Everyone in my class, including myself, is thoroughly pleased to have had you as their teacher.”
