What Teachers Think
More Letters of Praise From Teachers

Dear Judy, Renue and Deborah:

We cannot express our deepest gratitude for the HIV/AIDS educational program that you presented at Alamo.  Every student that came into the auditorium had no idea what a tremendous impact you would have on their life.  With every true story, every eye would widen and heads would shake with disbelief.  As the presentation started, all voices were silent and you could have heard a pin drop.

Every student that left the auditorium, left feeling that they were loved and that their life was worth something.  Every student left with much more knowledge about HIV/AIDS/STDs and alcohol abuse.  Your program should be a must for every Junior High and High school in the state.  Thank you very much for opening the eyes of our future leaders.

Sincerely,
The Alamo Science Department

 

Dear Judy:

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your wonderful organization for once again coming to Midland High School and speaking to our health and PE students.  You are a wonderful and passionate person to continue educating our youth about the dangers of premarital sex, the benefits of abstinence, and the dangers of the many STDs – especially HIV and AIDS.

Of all the speakers that come to Midland High School to talk to our classes, your presentation is by far the best and the most beneficial.  The students really listen to you and get so much out of your presentation.  They learn a great deal of information as well as get first-hand knowledge of the destruction that HIV and AIDS has on individuals, and their families.  I think  your presentation is so well received because you add something personal to the presentation.  The fact that you cared for your brother who died of AIDS, and that you continue to council and work with others that have HIV and AIDS is a testament to the level of care and concern you have for our youth.  You give a factual and blunt presentation about the dangers of AIDS, but you also come across as very caring.  The students really appreciate that.  It is evident that the students listen to you because many of them follow up with you by getting themselves tested for HIV and other STDs, as well as volunteering for your organization.

You are making a difference in the lives of our youth.  They are listening and changing destructive behaviors.  If you can make a difference in just one student each time you visit Midland High and possibly save them from contracting HIV…you have done your job; however, I know you are making a difference in far more than one student each visit.  There is no telling how many students you have helped prevent getting HIV over the years.

You and your organization are amazing.  We look forward to continuing our working relationship with you.  You have been coming to our school now for fifteen or sixteen years, and I am still moved each time I hear your presentation.

Sincerely,
Terri McColloch
Midland High School
