    Hello Kelly. Please have a seat. I've asked you to this meeting

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    The principal called a meeting to the teacher, Kelly, through an email. Kelly knocked the door and entered in the office. The principal was waiting for her.

    -"Hello Kelly. Please have a seat. I've asked you to this meeting, because I need to give you this information in

    person. You won the best teacher award several years. Besides you get along with all your colleagues. We have studied your case, and we have decided that the school will propose you for the job at the Ministry of Education.

    Kelly saw the principal, surprised and speechless.

    -"Do you accept?"


    Thanks.

    I'm concerned about why they want to transfer the best teacher out of the classroom.

    I was a little confused about the job on offer. It's possible for the school to recommend her for the post of Minister of Education but presumably ministers are appointed by the government. The principal might ask "Are you happy for us to recommend you?" and then, if the answer is "Yes", to follow it up with "And if you were offered the post, would you accept it?"

    Dear emsr2d2 and Raymott: Thanks for your answers.

    You won the best teacher award several years. (This doesn't work. Do you mean "You won the award several years ago?" or "You have won the award several years in a row?")

    I understand. I mean: You have won the award several years in a row.

    Thanks.
