I am writing this blog post one day before the last TALONS school day, and I have to say that I am feeling a wide variety of emotions right now. In some ways, I feel relieved, for the years in TALONS have been very stressful at times, but in other ways, I feel melancholy about facing the end of the program.
I’m not going to lie, TALONS was a rough journey for me. However, now that it is coming to an end, I am starting to realise how much I have learned from the TALONS program and how much I will truly miss the times I had in the TALONS program.
Thank You, and Goodbye
I would like to take this time to thank all of the teachers that taught me so many important lessons throughout my time in the program.
I would like to thank Ms Mulder for teaching me the importance of the autonomous learner model, and for teaching me about time management and the importance of keeping organised.
I would like to thank Mr. Jackson, for teaching me about the bigger ideas in life, and for helping me to develop a love for the study of history.
I would like to thank Mr. Salisbury, for teaching me that sometimes sleep is more important than studying, and for making math actually fun.
I would like to thank Ms. Dingle for teaching me the importance of presenting my learning in various ways, both creatively and analytically.
Finally, I would like to thank Mr. Albright, for teaching me the importance of learning to laugh, and for providing me with guidance on how I can improve my writing.
I would also like to thank my classmates, and the grade nine TALONS students, for all of their support and love, and for motivating me to keep on going!
Overall, I am heartbroken to say bye to TALONS, but hopefully, the future has good things in store for me!
With lots of love,
