May Ends a Great Semester
Mrs. Richards Technology Education
Technology Education and Gateway Engineering
It has been my pleasure to teach your children, to watch them grow in stature and in character. Every once in awhile I actually feel as though I have taught them something new.
: ^ )
I will miss them, the good, the bad, and the ugly. I have great hopes for your children, hopes for strong family ties, days full of wonder, futures bright with surprises. I was suppose to teach them about technology, careers, college skills. As usual, I think I learned more than they did. I do hope they heard a word or two. I tried to teach them about themselves and the powers they hold over who they are, who they will become. Technology is always the vehicle. The students are the drivers. I am merely a back seat driver. I will miss their great moments of "AHA!"
We do the best we can here in the classroom. You do the best you can at home. Perhaps some of the good in us will rub off on them. I hope so.
I wish each family much love, joy, and courage to move through the coming years. Yours kiddos are just the best. I am so very glad they came my way. Even when they leave my classroom, they are mine. They are welcome here any day, any year. Remind them to collect knowledge not points. To rebound as high as they can when they fall. That falling is not failure, just another lesson to learn.
We are blessed here at Schimelpfenig to teach in a community that values education and hard work. Thank you for a great year.
