Teacher says thanks
During this season of blessings, I want to thank the grandparents, parents, and guardians of my students. Thank you for your partnership in the education of our young people. Thank you for supporting your grandchildren and children, for caring so much about them, for loving them unconditionally for who they are.
Thank you for holding me accountable for their education and for accepting my apologies when I make a mistake. Thank you for celebrating with me their successes, for cheering them on to graduation. Finally, thank you for giving me important life lessons; you are my teachers.
Karen Wessel, teacher, Flex Alternative High School
