As a public school teacher and a parent of students in the Sequoia UHSD, I want to commend Emily Marie Beugelmans for her excellent letter. It's evident that her experience at Woodside gave her the opportunity to learn how to think critically and analytically and how to write clearly and persuasively. She also learned to appreciate what I see as truly American values. I'm sure UCLA is glad to have her.
