Helloo ..

I'm sure you all thought you wouldn't be hearing from me again, after my last blog, but I felt that there were a few things that I wanted to say.

It has been an amazing semester. I have met a lot of special, and talented people in this class. My fellow peers were amazing. We helped each other through each of our individual struggles. We laughed more than I thought possible in a student teacher environment, which is always a pleasant surprise.

I really believe that we as students, and Mr.K, have learned more than just formulas and sequences, but we have learned something much more valuable. We as a class have learned how to communicate, how to ask questions, and take the most of of the opportunities that are handed to us. We now can take these things with us to future courses, and wherever our lives may take us. This has been a really fascinating experience, and I am really glad I got to experience it with all of my classmates, and Mr.K.

Mr.K, keep up the good work! (I sound like a teacher, don't I?). It's people like you that show that high school teachers can really care about their students and their learning. The way you interact with your students, and how you go out of your way to help us succeed, well, this just astounds me. Your determination and willingness to succeed is a refreshing characteristic that not all teachers have. You inspire me, as a student, and as a person. You make me strive to be the best I can be, and to always "Go for Gold".

Thanks for all that you have done, I am so grateful. More than you know.

And to my class : I will miss you all. I know I have pre cal with some of you next semester, and I can't wait to get back into the math groove again. And for those of you that I cannot share this experience with next semester, this is a shame. But I wish all of you the best of luck on your exams, and future endeavors.

Congratulations to all of you! You have gone for gold!

Hi there pc20s'ers. I have been reading your posts regularly but have been blown away lately by the depth of your reflections. Many of you are recognizing the power of communication, questioning, persistence and the gratitude of hard work. You are learning how to learn - and that dear jellybeans is what school is all about. It is truly inspiring to see students value their education and the committment of their teacher. You are very lucky to have been inspired by Mr. K. Take his energy and passion and pass it along to others. Let it guide you towards becoming the very best that you can be at whatever you choose to do in life.
