Awesome letter: Use images to help describe your higher education journey

We’re sharing real STEM professional letters to pre-scientists annotated by LPS teachers to provide STEM pen pals with inspiration and ideas for their own letters. We asked our 2021-22 LPS teachers to pick a letter that stood out to them and tell us why. We hope this series serves as a resource for pen pals to make letters accessible and engaging for pre-scientists.

This letter was written by STEM pen pal Kaitlyn Gallagher to a 5th grade pre-scientist for round 2. The theme this round was: Higher Education Journeys.

The letter was annotated and reviewed by LPS Teacher Annette Licata, and here’s what she had to say:

Kaitlyn letter does a great job of breaking down her career path. Her clearly printed handwritten letter uses drawing with captions to get her information across.

Check out the letter below with Ms. Licata’s annotations in red text. Thanks to Kaitlyn for not only being a great pen pal, but also allowing us to annotate and publish her letter so others can benefit!
