Jasmine Rosete appreciates Ms. Trudl Love V Meniado-Wink, a teacher at INDEPENDENCE HIGH SCHOOL in San Jose, CA

Hello. I just want to take a moment to acknowledge how much I appreciate you, I know that might be funny coming from me, considering how I’ve tried to escape from your class my sophomore year, but I truly mean it. During the hardest time of my high school career, when I had given up on myself and your class, you took it upon yourself to talk to me, reassuring me that I was not a lost cause and pushing me to get the help I needed after school. It might have been just you worried about my grades, but it really helped me move forward from the roadblock I set in front of myself, and it helped make me the person I am today. Unlike before, when I was afraid to step foot into your class and afraid to make mistakes, I now look forward to your class periods, excited for our whip arounds and excited to learn new ways I can fix my mistakes. Happy Teacher’s Appreciation Week, and thank you for everything you have taught me!
