I truly feel that I have learned something from you in every interaction. You have consistently been a model of goodness, kindness, compassion, focusing on the students’ needs and looking from their perspective.
Although this training was meant for my work environment it made me look at myself, parenting style, past history, etc. I enjoyed it because it made me think deeper about things I feel I don’t have time to worry about or aren’t important, not knowing that I’ve really been affected.
You have single-handedly changed the way that I look at my students. You have taught me to be softer and consider their feelings in a way I never knew how.
I never thought you could help me to come as far as I am today. Today, I stand a strong, kind kid that cares about others. You helped me to become this person. You have given me a lot of good strategies to be able to get along with others, and I really appreciate that.
You have lead and you walked alongside me and you gave me the chance to pursue my passions.
You are a true visionary who cannot be confined to the walls of any one place. You will continue to make an ever increasing positive impact on the work. I admire your courage and heart to blaze your own trail.
Thank you for always being available and for creating space for me to express my thoughts, feelings and reflections.
I know so much because of you. You have taught me so much about children, and their emotional, social and behavioral needs. Also how to take a therapeutic perspective when talking with students. You have taught me to stand up for what I believe in. From teaching me about taking others perspectives, to standing up for my own, you have helped me become a stronger leader.
