TO MY DEAREST SENIORS,
Thank you for being a part of my greatest teaching year to date! Your work ethic and creativity gave me a spark each day that I won't forget. Getting to know EACH AND EVERY one of you was a blessing to me this year. I have no doubt about the wonderfullly interesting adults you will become! Seeing y'all yesterday in your circus costumes was a trip, and you coming by to say goodbye to me meant THE WORLD to me. I wish y'all nothing but the best in this new chapter in your life. Remember life is "what you make it". Make it fun, make it interesting, make it a learning experience...and in the words of Simon De Pury..."BE BOLD, BE BRILLIANT, BE AMAZING!"
