To all the principals, professors, teachers, teachers assistants, substitute teachers, volunteers, new students who are going to school for the first time and also those who are returning, I wish you all a safe, happy, healthy, educational, nurturing, and successful school year ahead in 2016/2017 season.
Advice to the students from me Talin Orfali, Enjoy these years and do not take school, the teachings and those who come to teach you and help you for granted. Teachers and teachers assistants are there to teach you with the best of their abilities, they are there to help you shape your future, your well-being and so much more. Please respect them and do not give them a hard time. It will make going to school enjoyable and it will make things a little easier.
These primitive school years should be ones to study hard, to develop your skills, mindset, the importance of being positive, optimistic, enthusiastic, make friends, seeing your school mates again, being respectful to others, helping each other, seeing someone who may be lonely during lunch breaks and in between to go see them, to introduce yourself and include them with your friends and ask them to tag along with you and welcome them to your table. These are important ways you can help others make them feel good about looking forward to coming to school and to learn with their peers.
I have been through so much when I was a student and I have written all about them here in my blog site. If you are interested in reading them, please contact me.
. Time goes by so quickly. Cherish each moment. I know there will be challenging days, and I am not saying there won’t be any, but take each day as it comes and fulfill each day with the willingness to always try your best. All the best!
