This past Monday was the 99th day until our seniors graduate from Trinity High School. To mark the occasion, I gave them a special gift - a letter from themselves. When they were freshmen, my predecessor, Mr. Malinowski, had them write letters to their future selves at their freshman retreat. I am not sure when the letters were intended to be given to them but I thought this was a good occasion as any.
The kids were shocked when I gave the letters to them. They were dying laughing as they looked at their handwriting and the things they wrote to themselves. I must say that this is a great class of seniors and I am going to miss them terribly. They were the last class I taught full-time and I had most of them as freshmen for World Geography. I look forward to spending these final days with them.
