Subject: My life
It was fantastic to talk to you on the phone yesterday. It sounds like your life is going pretty well. My life is pretty good too. I've been married now for 4 years. Do you remember Matt Shaffer from our biology class in high school? I married him. We have a beautiful baby girl named Kimberly.
I've worked at Watson High School as a history teacher since I graduated from college. It's really weird being a teacher at the high school that I attended. Some of the same teachers are still working there. Do you remember old Mrs. Kilmer, the mean math teacher who we thought was about 100 years old? Well, believe it or not, she's still working there. She's worked at that school FOREVER. She'll probably drop dead one day while she's teaching fractions.
I can't wait to see you next month. I've never been to Chicago but my neighbor lived there for 10 years. She's given me a list of things that I HAVE to do while I'm in Chicago. She says that the pizza in Chicago is the best in the world. I'll call you this weekend after I find out more information about flights to Chicago.
Which of the following things did she write about in the e-mail?
Imagine that you are writing a letter to a friend who you haven't seen in a long time. Tell your friend what you've been doing for the last several years.
Write on a paper or on our blog.
