Graduation is always an accomplishment that should be celebrated. However, it is made even more special for me when I get to see "my kids" walk across that stage. Although I consider all of the students I work with "my kids" that are part of my big Momentum Family, I am not always able to work with a student through to grade 12. When I do work with students into their graduation year, I feel so privileged to be part of their growth and maturity. I hear about their wishes, wants and woes, and become a part of their life for this short time. It is these students who continuously re-affirm my purpose here at Momentum Learning Centre, and for that I am forever grateful!
A quote to remember that is applicable in all stops along the road of life, from my days as a 4 year old in Montessori Pre-school:
I can do anything, even if I need help!
I'm so happy and proud of all the graduates this year! Waaaaaay back in grade 10, a few of these girls were my "Math Girls" as we struggled through the course together. The others I met as I would hear them come giggling and chatting down the hallway to drop their friends off. I just love this group (and everyone else who I didn't get in this picture).
I will miss them, but I know that they're on to accomplish many wonderful things! Congratulations Ladies!
