A Letter From Danielle Hello all! Many of you already know me, but I would like to introduce myself for those of you who do not. My name is Danielle McConnell. I am from North Carolina, USA. I have been working as a Language Assistant at IES Ana Maria Matute for three years. My main responsibilities at the school were to assist with the Bilingual Section and speak with the students in English as much as possible. My time at this school has been fantastic, but unfortunately this is my last year. With that being said, I would like to say a few things to the students, teachers, and parents. First, for the students: Over the years I have developed a relationship with many of you. It has been great getting to know you all, and the best part, for me, has been watching your improvement in the English language! At the beginning, some of you could not understand me at all, but now we can have full conversations. I know that English is difficult to learn and it can be frustrating, but you all are very intelligent and have already learned so much! You have amazing teachers at IES Ana María Matute as well as an incredible Bilingual program and are very lucky to have the opportunity to learn from them. Outside of classes, I have had some great experiences as well. Going to theater performances, trekking Ocejón and around Río Dulce, the “Days of the School”, and playing sports with you all are some of my favorite memories. Thank you all very much for making the last three years very enjoyable. I hope you all keep up the hard work in school! And don't give up on English! For the teachers: It has been my pleasure to get to know many of you, especially those of you with whom I worked with in the English Department and the Bilingual Section. My three years at the school would not have been as enjoyable if it weren't for you! I wish you all the best and keep up the great work you are doing with the students! Lastly, I would like to say a special thanks to the parents. Although I do not know most of you, I would like to thank you for supporting the students (especially those in the Bilingual Section). I hope to see you all again one day! You never know, I may come to Cabanillas del Campo for a visit! Big hugs, Danielle
