Ms. Margaret Metcalf

Dear Ms. Metcalf:
I have just been informed that you are to be my English teacher when I enter Middle School next year.
As you can see, we learned in English this past year how to write a Business Letter. This is a Business Letter.
I understand that our class will be reading To Kill a Mockingbird in the fall semester. I don’t mind reading the book but I thought I would let you know that I have seen the movie two times. Boo Radley is my favorite character because he is badly misunderstood. I myself am often misunderstood so I know what that is like. I was badly misunderstood last December at a family gathering and I feel it may have affected my entire personality although I doubt I will become a recluse like Boo. For one thing, no one is going to leave me a house where I can live in seclusion, except possibly a rich uncle, but it is unlikely.
I am looking forward to Middle School and I hope that we will establish a satisfactory relationship next year. This is my Closing Paragraph and in it I am supposed to request some kind of action. I would like to request that you pay careful attention to the other letter I am going to write to you. It will be a Friendly Letter.
Yours truly,
Katherine Metcalf Anderson
