Melissa Sandfort helped me organize my applications for college. I was accepted to all four schools I applied to…I don’t think I would have had such a success rate if it weren’t for her. Throughout the entire time we worked, I felt as though she really pushed me to be the best I could be… She helped me formulate ideas and put them on paper. As I wrote the essays, she edited them and explained how each part could be stronger. I really learned about writing as a whole. I learned so much! I plan to save my essays forever because I am really proud of the way they turned out.
Not only did she assist me with the technical aspects of the process, but she was always there for me as a friend. Whenever I got frustrated, I knew she was genuinely concerned and made it her priority to make sure I felt better. I feel very close to her and know she is always there for me in any sense. She is really quite an amazing person! I cannot even think of anyone that can compare. This summer, I learned so much about writing, people and life. I feel like I have a new perspective on things. I honestly have her to thank. –R.G
Rome fell, Korea was divided, Sean Connery lost a battle to male-pattern baldness, Michael Jordan left the game of basketball, Melissa Sandfort is retiring from her position of being our writing teacher. The world will never be the same. . .
I’ve known you for nearly two years now. During those two years, I think I can safely say my writing skills have improved. I credit you for having a lot to do with my success.
I know from experience that you make an outstanding teacher. You have a gift for making those around you comfortable. You’re one of the few teachers I have had that makes learning an enjoyable experience. You’ve been inspiring and very supportive. —I. J.
