If you can read this...

MSU News - May 13, 2015 - 2:21pm
Gracias. Xie xie. Danke. Merci. Grazie. Spasibo. Shukran. There are many ways to say it, but I'll say it the best way I know how - thank you. Thank you, Mrs. Martin, for greeting me with smiles and showing me kindergarten wasn't scary. Thanks to Mrs. Copeland for guiding me to a love of reading and Mrs. Trice for a big old bag of candy for winning the multiplication contest. Thank you, Mr. Cienich, for teaching me the Canadian National Anthem (which is super useful at many hockey games). Thank you, Mr. Burke, for fostering my energy and creativity and Mrs. Streit, for challenging me to be a better writer. Thanks, Mr. Carey, for making me a star algebra student and Mr. Danes, for making AP chemistry fun (even though I was far from an A student). Thank you, Mr. Rowan, for waiting to retire until you had the last Weide girl in AP English and Mr. Ballard, for reminding us all that it takes years to build a reputation and just one night to break it. Thank you. It seems like too small of a sentence to truly express the enormity of gratitude I have for the teachers who have touched my life.
