What's Going On Here? You Were Right About Melissa Zeman

By: Gemelia Restum, 10th and 11th grade English Teacher, Kubasaki HS

Date Posted: 1999-12-24

I have read with interest the publication, JAPAN UPDATE, as pertaining to Melissa Zeman. I have been her English teacher for two years. One of the thrusts in English is to publish. However, what is stated must be defended with facts, examples, comparisons,etc. It is not enough to have an opinion nor the courage to voice it. Melissa writes well. This is not the first time she has demonstrated her writing ability. She has been published in the STARS AND STRIPES, NOMAD, and other publications. Yes, as an English teacher I am pleased to see the positive recognition she has achieved over these years. What you do not know is that she is an accomplished musician. Although she is an 11th grade student, she has already been awarded a full scholarship to college. I ,too, wish to thank Melissa's parents. We have conferenced in the past. They are supportive of Melissa, Kubasaski High School, and education. I wish I had 100 just like her!
