Dear Mr. Kelsey

I have collected autographs for over 20 years. When I was in college I started writing to celebrities and asking them what they would tell a class of elementary school students. Over the years I have gotten over 200 letter and signed pictures to my students. I think that by these very busy people taking the time to share their thoughts with students, it shows the power of education. I hope you enjoy my collection

Robert David Hall: CSI Coroner

If you are a CSI fan, then you have seen Robert David Hall. He plays the coroner. He wrote a great letter and sent a cool signed picture. The picture is a little hard to see, it says, “To the GREAT students at Manor Hill Elementary School – Robert David Hall” I also love the postscript that added at the end of his letter. Here is what his letter has to say:

Dear Mr. Kelsey – Thanks for your chance to write to your students.

I decided to become an actor in the 5th grade. My teacher Mrs. Myers encouraged me to read and act in school plays. It’s not always important to be the star, but it’s crucial to always participate. The men and woman who end up with careers are usually the people who never give up and always keep learning. Some of the most important moments in my life were the Shakespeare plays I acted in for no money. Any career worth pursuing is a lot of hard work but it’s also a lot of fun.

Best wishes to you and all the students at Manor Hill Elementary

Robert David Hall, former 5th grade actor
