Students from my BOCES ESL class post their favorite writings from Fall Session 2011.
My Fourth Guest:
Khosrow Nassiri. Khosrow is a former police administrator from Iran who is now a U.S. citizen and a daily participant in our ESLclass. His wisdom and understanding are an inspiration to us all.
—Can you guess which one he is?
Khosrow chose this essay as his blog post. We read it aloud the last day of the Fall Session and had tears in our eyes after the last line. Khosrow who was in class with his daughter and son-in-law opened his heart to everyone; knowing intuitively that we are all one extended family.
The Last Paper of the Year (December 16th 2011)
I registered my name in Carver Center. My teacher is Mrs. Camille. She is the best teacher that I have had during my life. She loves her students. She is coming earlier than the students and is going out later than others. She gives us courage and energy to study. The shape of our class is fantastic. Every student could see the teacher and look at her mouth for learning the correct pronunciation. She practices with us many times.
She teaches us about American History and famous men and artists. She is a teacher that loves to teach her students and respond to the students’ questions. She brings different books and gave to student for to read. She tries to learn how to think and imagine the subject. At the end of the term she invites us to celebrate the Christmas party. We went there, all of the classmates were happy to be there. The decoration of the house was beautiful and artistic harmony. We put the gifts under the Christmas tree. Her husband is named Lou Del Bianco. He is handsome man and attractive singer. The situation of the party was very warm and lovely because everyone look each other with pure love. We celebrate the ceremony and read about SinterKlass.
Now this is the last paper of this term. I used to come five days a week to this class. I learned many things during the 10 weeks from my lovely teacher and dear classmates. I don’t want to say goodbye. I like to say see you soon with love.
