Letter from the Editor: Indulge

By Leslie Moore

Stephanie Necessary and Eileen Patonay are both educators at Forestbrook Middle School, and through the years we have worked together on several projects. I greatly admire them both for the dedication and love they have for their students – and their students have for them. Recently, I was asked to have a “shadow” for a few hours, a student would come and spend time at our office, seeing firsthand what we do. Haleigh Ferro, a bright and personable eighth grader showed up on time with a big smile on her face. We talked a lot about writing – she loves it – so I asked her to write a sample, “Letter from the Editor.” It was so well-written that I want to share a little of it with you.

Life can be compared to riding a bike. It’s a wonderful ride, the wind whipping through your hair, many different kinds of scenery ahead of you. Sure, you’ll get flat tires and fall off a few times, but you just have to brush yourself off and get back on the bike…things DO get better. So, walk with your head held high and enjoy life!

I look forward to seeing Haleigh succeed as a writer, or in whatever field she chooses. This month, let’s take her advice and enjoy life!

Every time we remember to say “thank you,” we experience nothing less than heaven on earth.

    Leslie is indeed a valued Forestbrook Middle School Partner in Education. The insights to Journalism as well as the education and experiences Leslie shares with our students is meaningful and fun. Haleigh enjoyed her Extended Learning Opportunity at Sasee. Leslie Moore’s support of our students’ education is greatly appreciated!

  2. I agree! The magazine is a BEACON for women/men on The Strand-and beyond!
    What an awesome experience for the student to be part of SASEE for the day!
    I miss being a teacher when I read articles like this!
