A New Day

October 24, 2008

Hello DLC-AL Community,

Today is my last day at DLC. I have spent 3.5 joyous, challenging and amazing years with y’all- and I am so grateful for each moment.

Thank you for changing my life. Yes, that’s right- you have changed my life. You have had an influence on me that I will never forget- thank you. I think that’s what the DLC is about- changing lives.

I especially want this to be shared with our extraordinary DLC-AL students and tutors. You have changed my life. That’s right- each day that you showed up to class, you changed my life. Each day that you learned or taught another sound, another word, another tool- you changed my life. Each day that you worked all day, or all night, and still did your homework or made your lesson plan, and showed up to class- you changed my life.

So, dear students- if you can change my life….I know that you can change your life. I know that you are changing your life, and for that, I thank you. I thank you for honoring yourself to make a difference in how you experience the world.

It’s a new day. Every day is a new day. Fresh start. New beginnings.

With Peace and Gratitude,

Yashna
