Each year, as part of the Grade 12 "Grad" retreat, students are given the opportunity to reflect on their years at our school. As a part of a closing to their journey, each student is given a sheet of paper and the opportunity to write a letter to any staff member of their choosing, expressing any thoughts, comments or feelings that they have.
This year, I was blessed to have received three wonderful letters from graduating students. The one below left me speechless and unbelievably touched by the kind words.
It is moments like these, when you read the words of students whose lives you have impacted, that we see the true depth of teaching. Teaching isn't just about content, lessons or evaluations; it is a human impact on another's life.
As educators, we are given the gift of working with young people and shaping the future. It is an extraordinary gift!
Whenever I need a refresher about the power of teaching on young lives, I will read this letter and remind myself that we make a difference every day!
