Every year we have someone in our community to give an inspiration speech to you. And I am one of them. We want you to get out and find what you want to do. We can sit here and listen to me, but don’t leave yet. I have some inspiration words and a great story to follow.
Our parents worked very hard to give you tools to survive: Home, food, and shelter. Other tools we need are the computer and the internet. How can we communicate to the other people around the world? Traveling is good, but how can we get there. Money is tight. We need money to take us anywhere we can. We have to make the best of what we can do. We have resources all around us. The library is the best way to find our sources. If you can’t find on the internet, try the library. You can also read in the library, quietly. Shhh.
Teachers stop flirting with your students. And students stop flirting with teachers. We want an education not to see a different teacher every time we come to class in the morning. We look up to good teachers who taught us, not to flirt, but take it down a notch. We keep losing teachers because they can’t perform in the class room. Use your resources and bring it to class and share it with your students. Teachers we have to be creative in the classroom.
Students please pay attention to your teacher. They are trying to teach you something new to you. They are training you to be the best and bring out your talent and use that talent.
What can be more drastic in the school, and it will never change is our behavior in the classroom. Behavior is a distraction to the education. We have to stop and pay respect to the students who passed on and talk about it, to learn our lesson that bullying is a crime. It can hurt relationships with one another.
Stop whining and complaining and let the teachers teach you. Education is no joke. We want to be smart and intelligent in the real-world to-day. We have to keep up in the world today and stay ahead with our competition. Dress for success, pull up your pants, wear something appropriate to school. Be a good leader. Show us what you can do.
We can be individual. Speaking up is good, but we have to choose our words wisely and carefully, think before speak, don’t insult your neighbor and friend. Look for solutions and apply yourself.
Be good and stay smart and have fun. If you make a mistake, try again, and don’t make the same mistake once. You have one shot to do it right.
To the graduate class, venture in your new adventure. At the end of your adventure write a book and share it to the world what you have accomplished.
