I’m extremely proud of all of my former students
I have mixed emotions at graduation time. It is exciting to see my former students taking the next step and graduating. I think about the opportunities that are in front of them. I’m also sad because life is changing and they are moving on.
When I see students in their regalia I realize this is a big step in their lives, and I get emotional. I have to fight back the tears. This was especially true with Hannah because we are close. I’ve known her even before she was my kindergarten student, and now our families are connected. She is my daughter’s sister-in-law. Her brother is a deployed Marine married to my daughter.
I’m extremely proud of all of my former students because I know the hard work it takes to get to this point. To reach this graduation milestone they’ve had to be academically successful and develop life skills. I believe this foundation will prepare them for success in their future.
