"Hi Jude, this is Fernanda (a student from Brazil)
I would like to take this chance to thank and congratulate you for being such a remarkable teacher. And also thank you for your kindness and knowledge in your excellent teaching skills, which you have passed down to me. I learned a lot from you, and the sentence “JUST DO IT” that you used to say is always on my mind pushing me forward to do things. I loved your stories and also the great advice you gave, they were inspiring for me. And I’m so happy that I got my dream job with your help in my resume and cover letter, I really appreciated that! It has been great 6 weeks with you! I really hope you can continue to be inspiring for your students, just like you were for me. I wish you the best, always! "
From Maika (a student from Japan)
