Sugar House Rotary shares letter from grateful Salt Lake City teacher

Hello Dr. Brown,
I wanted to drop you a line to once again thank you and the Rotary for the dictionaries you presented to my students last fall. At this point in the year the kids have become quite proficient in using the dictionaries. They find ways to use them nearly every day in class. Much of the time the kids don’t even have to be told to ‘Take out your dictionary and look this up.’ I was thrilled to see the class refer to their dictionaries with automaticity last week, and thought you might be interested in knowing the value this reference has been in my class this year.
