      The last few months have been challenging in so many ways, and you have demonstrated such maturity, responsibility, flexibility, and patience. I am so proud of you. I cannot begin to express how disappointed I am that we did not get to finish the school year together. I miss seeing all of your faces and listening to your bright and insightful comments. After this week, I may not officially be your teacher anymore, but I will still be here for you, so if you ever need anything or just want to check in and say hello, send me an email. I would love to hear from you. Have a wonderful summer! You deserve it!
