619 Langdon St., APT 8 Madison, WI 53703 March 7, 2012 St. Dominic High School 110 Anstice Street Oyster Bay, NY 11771 Attention: Michelle Hancock Dear Ms. Hancock: My name is, and I graduated from St. Dominic High School in 2008. As a student in your Health Education class, I learned a lot of valuable information, such as how to administer CPR and why we should avoid Tobacco and Alcohol abuse. However, there was a major void in the curriculum and I hope this letter will lead you to consider a change.

Just think about all the lives you can save by merely teaching the students of St. Dominic High School about safe sex. 5 people will get the virus in America every time you teach a class period! Think about that. Sincerely,...

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
