Past and present teachers deserve a big thank you ! You have changed so many lives , many of you without even knowing it ! From the big acts to the small seemingly innocuous words- you have made a difference to every student that walks through those gates.
To name a few – Jackie young – a straight talker who challenges all her students to be better, Lloyd carpenter – who convinced me health has a better career than teaching ( you saved future generations from an average teacher) , mr mulligan- countless arguments about how useless Maths and physics were and I would never pick a career that involves either( oh the irony in that since I’m a radiographer ) and Margie foster who taught me to never give up, believe In Yourself and you can always beat the boys at anything
Thank you for everything you have done !
Thank you ever so much for everything.
When I first came to school I was as scared as anything, you taught us to spell, to read and to do maths,
Thanks to you I can do everything I can, and now, I can even write this letter!
So when you see all the kids on the playground, you only have yourself to thank!
We all love your work and want to thank you but just don’t know how, so here’s a letter from all the kids in the school saying,
We love you Mrs McNulty!!!!
You were an inspirational teacher who encouraged me to be the best I can be musically. Your passion for the subject and skill as well as content knowledge definitely inspired me to pursue studying music at tertiary level and later on pursuing a diploma in teaching music. I will never forget you and hope that I have that same passion and drive for the students I teach. RIP.
Thank you for letting me spend my lunch breaks in your classroom when my friends were at band practice. Thank you for helping me realize that I can (& should) question the status quo and stand up for what I believe in. Thank you for the encouragement that lead me to the path of believing in myself. Thank you for introducing me to Punk bands I had never heard of.
kia ora, I would like to thank my old music teach Mrs Jan Fawkes, you had inspired me to believe in myself as a musician, and to find the passion and to look deeper within myself, to be open.. I am grateful the great challenges that bestowed upon me as a person and human being. thank you Jan. nga mihi atu nga whea jan o rangatira nga kui te hei mauri ora
