It is finally time for me to leave Green School Suzuka. Thank you very much for all the memories we’ve made over the past year. Everyone taught me so much and I will never forget you all. It has been wonderful watching you all grow up and improve your English. I’ve enjoyed so many experiences: hearing students say “No!” in English for the first time, watching students think about how to explain a new game to me, seeing students learn how to make new friends, and many more. I am sad to be leaving, but I am so glad that we were able to share this part of our lives with each other. You have a wonderful new teacher, Miss Iris, and I know you will learn a lot with her. Each and every one of you is so unique; as you grow older, please continue to follow your own dreams. I will try my hardest when I return to America, so please continue to try your hardest here in Japan.
