I got this e-mail on Tuesday. The student who wrote it graduated two years ago. Don't let the poor grammar and spelling bother you. She only lives in this country a few years and came here knowing no English. Her reading comprehension and her speech are good. It is too bad that this girl's English teacher had to focus on her passing the regents, instead of what really mattered. It is too bad that schools are funded in such a way that she tested out of ESL before she had a good command of the English language. In spite of this, Judi is going into her sophomore year at a good four year college, majoring in architecture and running close to an A average.
