I don't think any of us can believe how quickly the year has flown by, and I have thoroughly enjoyed myself - I hope you have too!
Coming to a new school is always daunting - it doesn't matter whether you're a child or an adult, the worries are still the same. You still need to make new friends and learn where things are kept. The timetable might be different and they'll definitely have new routines to learn. I'm really pleased you were the class to help me. You'll understand why, when you go to secondary school.
In many ways, the class a teacher has is the best bit, the biggest difference. A good class make a teacher work hard, just as much as a good teacher makes a class work hard. I feel like we found a good balance; decent effort, resulting in us being able to enjoy the 'banter' (as you like to call it). I've looked forward, most days (let's not go too far), to coming to work with you. You're wired, but use your powers for good - rather than evil - and you'll go far.
You have a lot of heart, and I'm impressed by the way you protect each other. Granted, the squabbles are completely unnecessary, but you make the best team when you pull together; you've evidenced this many times. With many characters to tolerate, I'm overwhelmed by much of your maturity and the understanding you have of everyone's backgrounds; there are a lot of adults in the world that could learn a lot from you.
They say school days are the best days of your life. It doesn't always feel like it, but it's true.
Moreover, they're the perfect rehearsal for adulthood.
Right now, it's your homework, but your future boss hands out deadlines too!
Right now, they're the naughty child, but that co-worker will always be irritating.
Right now, it's called playtime, but your friend's 30th birthday bash is fast approaching!
Keep an eye on your future; it's where you're heading and this time is important - you just don't realise it yet.
Best of luck little people.
