It has been an honor to be your teacher this year! I wish every family a safe, restful, and blessed Summer Break.

Please use that time when you are about to say to your parents, “I am bored” to read …read….read…read about things that you are interested in doing or becoming in your life!

The world is open to you; all you need to do is educate yourself to walk through any future door you wish!

Here is the last educational video link of the year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdLFCz1Y508&safe=active
