12 Years. 12 years of preparation for the point I am at now in my life, and I am here to say that is partly because of the teachers I’ve had within those 12 years, starting from kindergarten. I am proud to say that looking back now, I am proud to say that I am grateful to the teachers that have helped me get to this point in my life. I am also grateful for the facts of life that teachers throughout my 12 years of education have shared with me.

Without the mix of preparation educationally, words of advice, and tough love from my teachers in the past 4 years, I would not be where I am today. A place where I can say I am graduating this year. There is no denying that I’ve had some teachers that have pushed me to the edge, but thinking about it now, they wanted the best for me, wanted me to be great and successful in life, so I appreciate those teachers. Ms.Branic, Mr. Norman, Mr. Johnson, Ms. Milko, and Coach Brooks deserve special recognition.

Farewell to High School and Helloooo to new beginnings!
