“Dear Mr. Jeff,

Thank you so much for coming to our classroom and teaching us about killer whales. I learned that killer whales have 25 ways to talk. My favorite part was you got whale poop that made me laugh a lot. I wonder do people work with you?

Sincerely Kayva”

“Thank you Jeff for teaching us about orcas. I learned a lot about orcas. I cannot wait to see you again.

Sincerely Amara”


Thank you for coming to school. I now love orcas. Thank you for the orca cards. I learned that showering less is better for orcas.”
