I got a response from Jack and would like to share it here:
I have to say I feel honoured to be talking to you again. Before I started my short but meaningful journey at AES, I considered myself quite shy and would never have been seen as somebody that stands out! You really brought out my creativity and ability to shine and for that I thank you.
As you mentioned, school isn’t really the place for ‘people like me’ and I completely agree with you. Since I left New Delhi and came back to England I’ve had the thirst to perform in front of people, and again, I don’t think I’d feel that way if it weren’t for how brilliantly you got us going in front of that class!
Between bursting into a rendition of “Hit the Road Jack” and watching me attempt to do the worm across the classroom floor, I can confidently say that you are the best of the best. Your books are helping teachers worldwide man and thank you for sending them to me so that I can show everyone the chapter about my spider.
When first reading your reply a smile found it’s way onto my face and I couldn’t help but run downstairs and tell my family. You’re my middle school hero!
