It has been an incredible honor to work with each of you the past two years. I have learned a LOT from you all, and I only hope that I have managed to offer you something you could take with you to 7th grade.
I’m sorry I was not able to be at your promotion. As you know, I was at my daughter’s promotion. I chose family over work for the day, and I hope you can understand my decision. It’s not every day my oldest daughter leaves elementary school, right?
I won’t say goodbye. I’ll just say see you soon. I do hope that you will come back to say hi or to continue your filmmaking. We still have a documentary on literacy to edit. Hunter Henry stayed after school the day before promotion to help begin cutting! We’ll still need to bring in graphics, b-roll, and find where to cutaway to our interviews with Mrs. Hames, Mrs. Blomquist, and Professor Loeza.
Thank you for your hard work, the laughs, and the lessons you’ve taught me. It’s truly an honor to work with kids like you and families like yours.
Now enjoy that summer vacation!
See you soon!
