"I just wanted to write you a note thanking you for your performance today at Scullen Middle School. Our students were incredibly engaged and I truly believe that they were able to hear your message of kindness because you were able stimulate their minds through magic during your delivery. You were also able to differentiate your delivery and adjust it to the maturity level of your audience. The 6th, 7th, and 8th graders all received the same message, but you were able to present it to them at their varying maturity levels."
