Letter from the Chancellor on IMPACT

My principal handed to me yesterday a letter from Chancellor Rhee while I was on hall duty during dismissal:
To Ms. Maria Angala,
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent work that you are doing on behalf of our students. Based on first round IMPACT ratings from the master educators and your school leader, I know how talented and dedicated you are. Your efforts are the key to our students' success.
I know that teaching is extremely challenging and that you give 100 percent every day in order to ensure that all of your children succeed. I am happy to give you this $100 gift card as a small expression of my gratitude for your efforts to close the achievement gap and increase student learning. With the diligence of excellent educators like you, I am confident that we can develop a school system in which all children achieve at high levels.
Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and a relaxing winter break.
Michelle Rhee
Thank you Chancellor Rhee for the acknowledgement of the efforts that I do for my students. The Office Depot gift card will buy my students more supplies that we need for our project based learning in class. Happy holidays to you too!
