Subject: Re: Pen Pals for High School LD

: We are from a high school in Queensland 'Down Under' and would like
: to have some email pals from across the ocean for a group of
: students aged 13 - 15 , all with fairly low literacy levels.Greeting Queensland!I am an elementary teacher of severely learning disabled students ages 11,12,and 13 in Ontario, Canada. I am very interested in your pen pal request. Are the ages of my students too young for your purposes? All of my students also have low literacy skills. (I won't be offended if you think they are too young.)We also have a high school program within the same school. I can't speak for these teachers, but perhaps the ages are more appropriate for you. Let me back up. We are a school for severely learning disabled students and our grades range from 6 to 10. We have an elementary panel and a secondary panel. I won't pursue this further until I hear back from you. Perhaps you already have your pen pals. Do you know of elementary teachers with the same population of students who might be interested in this same kind of correspondence?Really interested in hearing from you!!!! Tania
