Dear Eliezer :
I am proud with your poem, “You want to know about me?,” because you explained of where you from. Also you showed about how u have a hard working family.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I am from a hard working family.” I think this is important because than you could be an example your parents by you in the future become a hard working person.
Another sentence that I liked was: “I am from Mexican foods like Tamales, Tostadas de tinga, Tacos. I am from pizza.” This stood for me because food is what u have to eat everyday.
Your poem reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I went to mexico I ate tamales and tacos and they good.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you next, because I liked how u described everything about you.

This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
