The article “Lodi Academy collects awards at Worldstrides Heritage Performance,” May 22, aroused my attention. Following is an incident that took place on Dec. 13, 2013.

Last December, students from Lodi Academy came to Vintage Assisted Living on Kettleman Lane to sing for the holidays. Both girls and boys were involved. Roses were distributed — lovely roses to each of us attending.

The girls who gave me one were overwhelmed when I told them I had been a teacher. Within a brief time, about eight of the young people surrounded me asking questions about teaching. I was delighted with each precious one.

As a kind recognition to these students, I immediately bought a thank-you card. I would have enjoyed a response — no luck!

On Feb. 14, some of the same girls came to greet us at lunch. When they came to my table, I asked if they had received my Christmas greeting. They exchanged glances and said no to one another! “We never saw it,” they said. I was upset!

I made at least five calls to the school and could not reach the music teacher. I also sent around a letter to the teacher! No response!

How much did this less-than-warm teacher get involved with these warm students? I have to hope for more than she did — the students were so precious.
