I love the letter writing assignment! I would also really enjoy reading those letters and I wonder if you write one for them about your own life? I'm sure it's a fine line to walk, but the reciprocity of it all seems like it could form a beautiful teacher/student relationship. It's unimaginable what our youth bring to the table these days. I'm so thankful for my normal and happy childhood. Instead, I fight my battles now, as an adult with life experience and supportive friends and family.

Oh yes--I give them one that I write myself! I think this really makes an impression on them, and helps them feel confortable opening up and sharing with me.
