Where do I begin? I find it hard to believe that you will no longer be teaching us in Sp. Filipino next year. In fact, the very idea that you won't be walking the halls of CSA any longer breaks my heart. This may be surprising, coming from me, but the respect and appreciation I have for you is far, far more than it seems. You are one of those teachers whose words embed themselves in our hearts and minds and you have taught me far more than just Filipino. You have taught me the importance of loving your culture, fighting for justice and freedom and serving with your abilities. You are truly an inspiration and I know you are one of the teachers I will never forget. One who's passion and conviction has been so strong that I will carry it with me far into the future. I'm truly sorry for attributing to the hassle that Sp. Fil has become for you, I hope you understand that we are how we are because we're so fond of you. You have made the last two years of Sp. Fil very enjoyable, something I look forward to. Good luck to where you go next, though I am certain you will succeed no matter where life takes you. Your drive and restless spirit will take you far. Continue writing and fighting for what is right! I hope to see your name in print someday! And with a heavy spirit and tears forming at the corners of my eyes, I just have to say thank you so much for affecting my life.
