One of my top students - very smart, confident, ambitious, outgoing and popular, emailed me the message below. She is one of the most literate students that we have, and yet communicates with her friends and, apparently, me, using this version of English far more often than she does proper English.

Hey ms i wnted to noe if u cudd help me cus I went to ma grandmas
house and she was yelling at me cus jasha the girl i had a problem
wiff frm 6 grade told her mom im kept on bothering her.idnt even look
