I need many heroes in my life. Heroes help me find courage and inspiration to live a full life. So I constantly look for heroes in many places. Every semester I find a new collection of heroes in my students. You all help me feel stronger, younger, and happier. You have courage to begin new lives in a new culture. You are able to speak wisely even though English is crazy and you feel like children sometimes when you cannot explain your ideas as well as you wish.
And this semester in our CALL class, you learned to write web pages! You are my first students to learn to do this with me. Thank you for your patience and intelligence! You worked so hard to understand this interesting, new way to communicate with each other and people all over the work. Thank you for being my new heroes!

Keep writing, please! You do great work!
Send me a new story sometime! I love reading your work.
