A letter from Mrs. Yoder

To My Students (past & present), My Students’ Parents & MMPA

There are not words that can describe how incredibly blessed and honored I feel to have had the privilege of being a choir teacher at Northridge High School.  I have learned so much from each and everyone of you and my life has been enriched by you.

To MMPA:  Thank you for your continued support and generosity of time and finances not just to me, but most importantly, to our program and our choir students.  We could not have had the successes we had without you.

To My Students’ Parents:  Thank you for allowing me the privilege of teaching your children.  It has been an honor and blessing.  I know there were times when your child was spending more time in my classroom than he/she was at home.  Thank you for trusting me with that privilege.

To My Students (both past & present):  I cannot begin to tell you what a blessing each of you are to me.  You are loved and treasured by me.  It has been thrilling watching you grow into fine young adults who continue to pursue excellence and to be people of compassion and character.  Continue to surround yourself with positive people who encourage you.  Encourage others.  Laugh often.  Be honest.  Listen more than you speak.  Go explore the world.  Then, come back and teach us what you learned.  Wherever you are, be ladies and gentlemen.  Work hard.  Above all else, guard your heart.  Whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable—-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—-think about such things.

May God bless you all!

Love, Mrs. Yoder
