Dear Wendy, I wanted to write a message to let you know how grateful I am for the work you did for French teacher. It’s the end of the school year and I look back at all the people I was lucky to meet, and meeting you at a Summer Institute in 2008 was such a turning point for me. After 11 years in New Zealand I am now in Ireland but still so impressed by the quality of the AIM resources, the way the vocabulary and grammar are scaffolded and every year I have students who tell me thank you for teaching me languages in a way I can understand. And that is thanks to you and your research and your work. Thanks for being such an inspiration Wendy!
