Subject: [] quick question about your Women\’s School of Motocross page!

Hi there!

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that your page http://www.wsmxinc.com/ really helped out a few kids in my Social Studies class! Two girls in fourth period found your page while researching for their \”Women Pioneers\” project (they\’ve taken the initiative to come up with their own topic, \”Women on Two Wheels\” lol). They wanted to share another page that they really loved: http://motorcyclesandwomen.com/motorcycle-women/women-and-motorcycles/motorcycle-women-stories/108-famous-women-motorcycle-riders It\’s a really fantastic article on famous female motorcycle riders throughout history!

I\’ve been tutoring and subbing for awhile but am just starting in the teaching field. It seems like such a collaborative profession, which is why I was hoping you wouldn\’t mind adding the page the kids found to your site with all of your other valuable resources ;)

I think it would thrill the girls to see their suggested page on your website; I told them that if you were kind enough to include their page on yours, I would give them a few bonus points on their project (I\’m just so excited they\’re feeling empowered by this unit!). It actually is a useful article with a lot of good material, which is why I indulged them by contacting you. Again, sorry for the interruption!

Thanks so much, can\’t wait to hear from you!!
