Farewell and Good Luck

And so, the time has come where I must bid a fond adieu to you, the students extroadinaire of my first year at Haileybury.

Words cannot express how proud I am of you. It is a grand achievement to have journeyed through 13 years of school, and arrive at this final moment with such enthusiasm and camaraderie.

In saying goodbye, I’ll let the words of Maurice Sendak, author/illustrator of Where the Wild Things Are, speak for me:

“But the wild things cried, “Oh please don’t go – we’ll eat you up – we love you so!”
And Max said, “No!”
The wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws but Max stepped into his private boat and waved goodbye.” 

And for those who don’t get the metaphor – I’m the wild things and you are Max.

And for those of you who have never read  it, here are two versions. Watch both. The second might make you giggle.

  1. Thank you miss for a wonderful year.
    I’ve enjoyed every class and i appreciate the amount of effort you put in for us.
    Thank you not only for the help with grammar, but helping me view the world in an entirely different and more interesting way. I will always be checking those online article websites such as ‘artofmanliness’ and i hope we still here from you on this blog.
    This year in english has certainly changed me for the better.
    Thankyou 🙂

    Merci beaucoup madame pour la meilleure d’années!
    J’ai aimé chaque minute et j’apprécie vos efforts.
    D’une part, merci pour l’aide avec grammaire et d’autre part, merci pour m’aider a voire le monde dans un point de vue totalement diffèrent. Je toujours lirai les articles en ligne comme ‘artofmanliness’ et j’espère que nous vous recentrerions l’année prochaine.
    Cette année la classe d’anglais me suis amélioré.
    Merci 🙂

    1. It’s spelt ‘hear’ Jack. the least you could do was get your grammar right for your English teacher. But thank you very much Miss Bohni, for an excellent year. 🙂
