than you ale ill keep on looking and finding to see whic is my hero and what makes me think he is a hero I think it will be a good thing to do and to make in language I think I found one but Im not sure because there are many more important people that I can look for. One of my heroes I think I will put will be my grandfather he made things for me and my family great and I am proud of him although theres one thing that bothers me that I really never liked to tell o other people but I know he is a great person because he is there when I have a queston or something I dont understand. thtats wht I trust him so much.
byue bye

I had like a problem starting doing the work because I had 2 persons to choose and I didnt know ho to choose. I was between my greatgrandmother that has 95 years and she sows a lot and she is PERFECT she can do everthing she sows my clothes! and the other option was my grandfather that when he was like 25 or 30 years he built almost every building in TANDIL, Argentina. He is famous in Tandil. Finnaly I choose My GRANDFATHER!!!!

I am still trying to decide who is my personal hero. I have a lot of choices. What i do know is what they all did to help in some way. The ones that you read to us in class of the people that were featured were incredible. They really did choose the right ones. I hope that i have the chance to do an SA as good as them or as good as i posibly can. I am thinking a lot on what to write or with what things i can improve it. Of the ones that are my personal heroes i admire them all some i got to know but some others i didnt have chance to get to know them. Although they are know gone they will always be my hero. SEE YOU TOMORROW!!!!!

Miss Ale,
I had already manage to get information about my personal hero, that is my grandmother. She was really brave for me because she escaped from the w.w.2, and had to overcome a lot of dificulties throught out her life. I alwasy think about her, and I know all the stories my father had told me about her childhood. I´M VERY ANXIOUS TO START WORKING ON THIS PROYECT! I have all the information needed. I chose her because althogh I couldn´t never met her, when I have some problem I think in how brave she was and I compare my problems that seem so little compared to what she had to pass in live. She is my personal hero! I really admire her! I wish I had know her.
Miss Ale, yestarday we had the choir thing in the school it was great!!

Thank you for the help, see you,

Dear Miss Ale: I LOVED THIS IDEA OF WRITING ABOUT OUR PERSONAL HERO!!!!
I think that this project will be very very important for us all because each one of us will write about somebody wich made a difference at his/her family or just themselves, and that person might not be only one but it can be many people, so if you choose one of them it will be a great honor for that person(in my opinion). This project has had me thinking all weekend since you told us what it will all of this be about, on who I will be writing of, I think that maybe one of my perents or maybe my grandmother, well, the point is that we should ALL apprecicate very much this "project" because this person will had had to made a big difference for your lefe, when I write about those people who made a difference in my life, I feel very happy and I really find it fun to write about annecdotes on his/her life. I think that it is a great idea to send our storyies to this page so that those people on AMerica(right?) read them and then, if they like them, will put it on an ONLINE PAGE, that is something I can´t wait for, to see the name of somebody who I know at that page, that sound REALLY interesting!!!!!
I think that if you get the mail, telling you that your story has been recognized or put on that page, it will be a great idea to tell the one you wrote on, even if he/she doesn´t know English, I think that if that person reads his/her name and the name of the one who wrote about that person, he/she will be very happy and proud!!!!!
WELL MISS ALE... CAN´T WAIT FOR THIS PROJECT TO START!!!!}
THANK YOU FOR GIVING US THIS CHANCE!!!
I REALLY APPRECIATE IT !!!!
BYE BYE
SEE YOU SOON...

Miss Ale:
I think this is a very good idea because I had never focused in this lovely project thinking who was my hero. "my farther" you know that he is very funny but that isn't the point. he gave me a life together with my mom!! This idea is super now I am thinking very good why my farther is a hero!! And thiese feelings are our personal opinion and our point of view of each hero. For example in biographys we can't put our personal opinion we have to put his carreer his death etc. Here I am going to let my feelings go and think wich qre my felings. Thank you ale because now I know whoi s my hero but I don't have to forget somebody "my MOM"

Miss Ale,
Thank you for letting me know. Though I dont have information to look for on the hero I chose because I already finished writing my work. I think this work we are doing on our heroes is really nice because you actually get to write about a person you really admire or you reallt think you have same things! I think it is really, really fun. I really enjoyed writting about my hero because I really admire theperson I chose and I think all the writen works on this project are the same.... As in everybody who wrote them admire their hero.See you

At first I did not knew about who to write because I did not remember about anyone. But when I went to secondary for choir I remembered that some relative mine is graved in the wall were it says what students of St. Andrews went to the war. Now I know about who to write, but now I need to look information about him. I am going to ask my dad now that he told me about him or my grandmother.
See you tomorrow,

HI miss ale!!!
I love this project of heroes, and I am really putting a lot of effort on my essay. I chose a doctor who operated my dad's leg, and save his life. Before I was born, a machine of 3 toneladas (I don't know how to say it in english) fell in his foot, and broke his leg. I reallly appreciate the doctor's courage because, if it wasnt for him, I wouldn't be here today. Well miss ale, See you tomorrow!

Miss ale:
I think this project is a very interesting one. I would love the people to accept my hero, it would be such an honour for my family!!!! My hero is my great grandfather because he was the one that came to argentina and if he wouldnt be so brave to leave my family in sweeden and come to a complete new territory Argentina. If he would not have come here I wouldn't be here. Well this is a sum up of my hero . Well
see you ,

Ale!! I was a absent on Friday(when you explained it to 6A)!!
So I need you or somebody to explain it for me! For only seeing the name of "my personal hero" I think it is one hero that is familiar and we think that the things he/she were important so I choose it like a hero for school and then you write some adjectives and we paraphrase a paragraph with information we looked at home with our parents or grandparents!!! But well there I guessed!!! Then can you explain to me!! Thanksss!!!

Hi miss ale I have started my work about my hero and I finished it. ALThough you didnt read it yet. At first I couldn t choose my hero and then it occured to me that it could be my grandpa or my grandma, but then I choose my grandfather because I knew his story best and now he passed away so it is an honor for me to choose him. I dont think I can be selected for the features in the web page but I am proud and glad about my work. But today I realised I couldnt be there when I Remembered the storys about pascual and milagros and I thought : I dont have such a good vocabulary I tried my best in the story.Well thats all.

Bye bye

Thank you for posting this page!!! I read lots of stories that where really good!! For this project I chose my great grandparent, althought he was getting very old (100 years) he really saw life on the other side, he always smiled at everybody and he always said " I wanna enjoy life now that a few time is less" He played games with all the family, he tought me amazing things like magic with cards and very electronical things which are awesome! Now he has passes away and I miss him a lot. But I will never forgive him. He always told me unforgetable stories about his childhood, having such an age it was amazing that he could remember all this! Now that I think about it he was one unique grandparent for me and I will never forgive him.
Miss Ale, I hope you like mystory about him and I also hope that the people from "My hero" also like it and put it in their page!
see you soon...

I think this is a very good idea to do it because first we write about a given hero but then we had to use on of ower one heros, and so in the firs given hero we knew about it and then we write on on ower own and I think this is something that you can learn

Miss Ale:
We already star writing about our personal hero i have only a question because my mom is anxious to see my writing..
are you going to give back the piece of writing?




I think this essay is great, because we can see what person is a hero to another person!!!
For me my mom is a super duper hero and i`m sure that the persons which other of us choose is too a real hero!!!
bye
hug and kisses

HI ALE,

I like a lot this project of heroes, because you have to research a lot, and of really nice things, like a lot of acts that they made, that really afected us , and that now we live better thanks to them. Others, what changed maybe didn't affect specially US , but a lot of people , and it is good to know that those people now live better. That leads to this part of the project that is about each one's personal hero . That affected us, or our family in different ways!!
The nicest thing I coinsider of this project it is that , appart from knowing interesing facts, it affects our knoledge of how to became a better person, because it makes us reflect a lot in our daily acts, and how to improove them, because we know , through this, that people can be hurt so much, but something that others don't even care, like discrimination, or other horrible things that have to be avoided. So it is important that they teach us messages like this ones when we are young so that we can learn how to act better day by day. It is like is CIENCIAS SOCIALES, with marita that she tought us that we have to study the past to understand the present and make a better future.
I like a lot projects like this when we have to apply lot of knodlege that we learnt in diferent subjects. Because there we shoe that in life we have to know a bit of everything to be able to make something.
SEE YOU

HI MISS ALE!!!
I think that this project of heroes is really cool and I really enjoy it because it is really interesting search information about other people that were heroes and that they are still heroes and that we still remember in our memories and that we respect them as they have to be respected... My hero was craigkielburger wich was a great person because he helped poor people and made a project on that that was really corageos because you need lots of braveness to go against the law and to argue them and thats how he turned to a hero and also becasue he made us know (although some people didn`t notice) that we must change and that there is still time to change...

Hi there!
I really enjoyed writing my hero essay because it made me think of all the people I consider as heroes because they did something good to humanity. It took me a lot of time, but I finally decided on my grandfather. He is a really important person to me and to others. He is a doctor and he saved many peoples lives. Well right now I´m not going to write my whole essay, but I can tell you he is a really nice and brave person. I hope the people from the webpage like our essays. I would like to be chosen.
See you,

I love this project because it gives us the opportunity to reflect about persons that we care for and that we love. I love the oportunity to show it to all the world via myhero.com because all the people in the intire world can know the history of my family and how I think towards my family and towards writing. The "juicy part" of this project is that we can see other stories of other persons and how they write. Also what they like and who they consider a hero. In this opportunity I chose my grandfather, but I have a lot more heroes like my uncle or like my father etc. This project leaves me with a learning that is that when you want to say something about what you feel you have to let your heart away and let it fly so you can reflect as much as possible.
I loved this project and I see towards doing another one with this characteristics

I think that is a good thing to do because the person you honored as: YOUR HERO is going to feel very proud and he/she will know that you thank him/her very much!
I really enjoy writting this!
Its a very good idea putting it in the heroes page because from all the parts of the world you can see it and also whenever you want to read it you enter to the page and thats all!
At first it was difficult to chose someone because I was between a lot of people but finally I decided and Im writing it . I like very much this project of heroes!

Miss Ale,
I thought a lot about my personal hero and I finally chose my grandfather to write about him. He told me how he escaped from the war and his story was really incredible. He had to go to a lot of countries on his way to Argentina. Many times he was caught, but luckily he could escape. I think that it is great for us to write about our personal hero because we can tell our friends who is a hero for us. I loved this idea! When I told my grandfather that he was my personal hero, he was very happy. I think that he felt honoured to be the personal hero of his grand daughter I am very proud of what he did and that´s why I chose him.
Thank for including this post!!
Have a very nice weekend
See you,
