T stands for Valediction

Hello My Lovelies!

How are you today?Hope you are well. I can't believe Christmas is next week! Are you excited about that? My girls are for sure!Christmas is a magical time no matter whether you are Christian or not.
It was my students'graduation last week and I want to share some photos with you. They start high school in February. One of the classes invited me to make a valedictorian speech. Here both teachers/professors/students do that during the cerimony which is quite informal for their grade. Most of them are 14 or 15 years old. Needless to say I was quite nervous because a graduating class always expects something extraordinary. But I reminded them that education and culture are our most important "possessions/assets" which may sound a cliche, however, I truly believe knowledge is more important than money.It was an unforgettable day!

my daughter and me

I found a quote to share with you:

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” 
― Nelson Mandela

Nelson is right!

T stands for Tuesday
