Advice From Your Teachers

Posted on June 16, 2011


“You are what you repeatedly do, so look at what you do every day and what it says about you.”

“Don’t assume anything…and always look both ways before crossing the street.”

“If there is 1 piece of advice I would give it would be to do good in the world. Most humans don’t get to be famous or rich but we all are given opportunities to do good, whether in raising good children or doing volunteer work or donating money to charity, or in  simple, daily opportunities like helping an elderly neighbor or visiting someone who is sick. When someone describes you in the future, let them say that you are someone who is doing good in the world.”
-Mrs. Soboleski

“Dear STHS Class of 2011,

I some have good news and bad news.  The good news is that you have achieved one of life’s landmarks!  Congratulations!   The bad news: the past 18-or-so years have been easy.  Baby, you just ain’t seen nothin’ yet!  But If you use the skills and experience you gained at Springfield, there is nothing you can’t handle.  You are capable of great things!  Go get ’em, Spartans!”
-Mr. Gottesman

“Dear Graduates:

Go forth from here with your wings spread and fly.  May those wings carry you to the heights of your fullest potential.  Brief were my days with you and briefer still the words we have shared.  Farewell to you and to the youth I have spent with you.  I am proud to have been your teacher.”
-Mr. Weidner

“Do not become distracted by money, materialism, or reputation.  Listen to your inner voice, find your passion, and follow it!”
-Mrs. Shirley

“‘Follow your bliss’-Joseph Campbell”
-Mr. Gershman

“Sometimes it takes leaving to realize how great you really had it while you were there.  May all your schooling, experiences and friendships from Springfield be with you always.  Go Spartans!”
-Mr. MacFarland
