Congratulations Class of 2019



Dear students,

I want to thank you for all that you have taught me, and trust me, it’s been a lot.

I want to tell you how much I appreciate all the attempts and successes to make me smile when you knew I most needed one.

I want to thank you for letting me share my thoughts and opinions with you, and thank you for seeing them with an open mind.

I want to thank you for all the obstacles you put me through because in the end I knew I would grow from overcoming them.

I want to thank you for putting up with my good days and my bad days, even when it seemed like I had lots of bad days, I didn’t.

I want to thank you for allowing me into your lives, and for some of you, into your hearts.

My dear students,

Thank you.


Congratulations to my 8th grade students. I wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors!
